Phase 3: Our Plans This Winter
27 May, 2016
This winter we will begin Phase 3 of trapping which will further extend our protected area to the western end of the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve, leaving only the eastern (Rotorua) section of the forest left to trap.
To implement this trapping phase, six staff members will spend around 80 hours to cut and mark the trails. They will then place around 400 A12 possum and A24 rat Goodnature traps out into the forest.
We estimate we will trap around 800 – 1000 invasive pests in this phase creating a larger ‘safe zone’ for another successful spring breading season.
