We are delighted to announce that Russell Varcoe from Glenorchy, has won the contract to help us with the set up phase of the Braided Rivers project. We had many high quality applicants. We are currently finalising the contract and a timetable for this crucially important phase of our project. We look forward to working with Russell in the weeks and months ahead.
Rusty has made a terrific start for this project. The tarps were built and placed in quick time. This was followed by some checks and rebaiting over the following weeks. The data are recorded on the trap.nz website. A link to this is available under that news item.BACK TO NEWS PAGE
