Trap lines along the Whangawehi stream

The recent trap checks along the Whangawehi river was quite encouraging with 4 hedgehogs and one rat caught on Grandy Lake Forest and two hedgehogs caught on Pat and Sue O’Brien.

Traps are monitored every second week and rebaited with deshydrated rabbit meat. The data is logged into a custom made booklet and kills are entered by the landowners into a data base (cloud application : trap.org.nz). Monthly reports are presented to the Whangawehi Catchment Management Group Committee and Hawkes Bay Regional Council.
