Pest control update for Whangawehi

With our goat control strategy well underway it is good to update the community and talk numbers.
Since March 2014, 663 goats have been removed from the stage 1 area which is mainly located around the new planting area. Hares became a problem after our first community planting day. Extra funding was made available by HBRC to control them and to date 12 hares have been removed from the area.
The planted area is already changing with a lot of birds coming back and thriving especially King Fishers at this stage.
Our pest control strategy is key to the success of our project so thank you to HBRC and DOC for helping out.
Stage 2 of the strategy will start very soon initially with some ground musters followd up by ground control.
