A meeting will be held at 10am in South Head Hall, Donohue Road, on Sunday 12 May, to discuss community implementation of a Lake Rototoa pest control project.
South Head’s Lake Rototoa is widely regarded as a great place to visit and swim and the beautiful bush reserve around the lake provides habitat for a range of native species, some rare and endangered. Concern that introduced predators like rats, stoats, ferrets and possums threaten the health of the reserve has sparked a community project designed to tackle the problem.
The Forest Bridge Trust has funding from DOC and Foundation North to assist the community, through South Kaipara Landcare, to make the project happen. Among other things, the May meeting will discuss how to become part of a trapping team and how to get support for pest control on your own land if you’re in the immediate area of Rototoa Reserve.
If you plan to go, please RSVP to or 021 169 4485.
