The predator data from our braided river traps are recorded, after every survey, at the trap.nz website.
We completed our first bird count on the rivers in 2017. We will repeat this in 2018 and 2019.
1n 2018 we placed 601 predator traps, on the Dart and Rees rivers, to protect the vulnerable braided river birds.
There are no hedgehogs in our area and we plan to keep it that way by placing new traps on both sides of Lake Wakatipu.
In 2017 we took over responsibility, from DOC, the maintenance of the 34 single traps that form a line by Lake Sylvan.
Feral cats are a nuisance in our area. We are scoping plans for how to tackle this problem.
There are 50 kilometres of trap-lines in the valley forests, starting near the Routeburn shelter, targeting rats and stoats,
We have 200 traps in the Harris Saddle area and Hollyford Valley faces where rock wren and kea are under threat from stoats.
