1. PEST MANAGEMENT
We run a number of pest control lines around Mauao and Moturiki. If you wish to help out with baiting, clearing or managing a pest line, and help develop new ways of controlling the many pests we encounter, then your contact person is: Julia Graham – 021 077 6851 07 544 5190 email: penguinsplus@gmail.com
2. REVEGETATION PROJECTS
Our first major revegetation project is going to be on Moturiki (Leisure Island). It is being hammered by people tearing down trees, camping on it, – basically trashing the place! There are a number of seabirds trying to nest there and they need our help to have sufficent cover on the ground to do so. If this is something you think you can sink your teeth into, then your contact person is: Sandi Van Leeuwen – 027 303 3088 07 544 6446 email: scottnzsandi@kinect.co.nz
