On monday the 1st of December, Rod Dickson from HBRC came to Whangawehi to advice Pat and Sue O’Brien (Taharoa Trust) and Graham Douglas from Grandy Lake Forest on how to best protect the newly retired area along the Whangawehi stream. Both landowners were looking for options on how to best protect the bird life which is already coming back to the site. Rod Dickson gave a few traps (DOC 200) to get this group started. Monthly reports and kills will be collected for long term monitoring. The DOC 200s target Weasels, Stoats, Rats and Hedgehogs.Thank you to HBRC for getting these willing land owners started.
