Over the last few years we’ve received a string of calls for help from conservation groups and authorities around the world including Hawaii (mongoose threaten their native birds), Scandinavia (mink threaten their seabirds) and England (grey squirrels threaten their trees and red squirrels). Since we’re always keen to find solutions that are safe, humane and provide constant control, we were totally up for the challenge.
Throughout the year, we at Goodnature do our bit to monitor the success of our traps in a bunch of places around New Zealand. One of those places is Great Island, part of Fiordland National Park in the southwest corner of the South Island.
Duck hunters pioneered wetland restoration long before conservation became fashionable. Recent ecological surveys indicate that the habitat they created is helping threatened native water birds.
