Successful Whio Protection Program

Our Whio Protection Program began in 2014 with the aim being to control predators along the Waimarino River. 

The Program has been highly successful so far with 22 ducklings being reared by 10 breeding pairs.  A total of 34 stoats, 517 rats and 93 weasels were caught by the set traps during the 2014-2015 season with trapping having now recommenced in mid-2015.
