Species restoration plan

The Whangawehi Community has initiated a significant conservation initiative and the community is now willing to know what kind of bird species could benefit from those protected habitats. The report attached is a brief overview of the native wildlife restoration possibilities for the catchment and the necessary steps to follow to achieve them.

A big thank you to Tamsin Ward Smith and Kay Griffiths .

Well attended pest control workshop

On the 15th of October, the WCMG organised a pest control workshop with support from DOC, HBRC and suppliers. The day went extremely well with displays of the latest cut of the edge technology in the trapping industry. All participants learnt a lot and were certainly encouraged to continue their pest control effort.

 

Water monitoring run

Our water monitoring programme has been upset this winter by a combination of heavy rain falls and a lot of Wind. Up to 190 km of Wind was recorded on Homestead and unfortunately a lot of windthrow occurred blocking site access. Graham Douglas did a fantastic work and reopened all the tracks for our pest control and water monitoring work, thank you for that.

This water monitoring site is incomplete as all the sites were not monitored at the same time due to access issues. This shouldn’t happen again as all tracks are cleared now.
