Supporting the improvement of the Ecology alongside the Hauraki Rail Trail

Thank you for your support which has now made it possible to remove the last of the old cattle-stops by February 2022. This is a major milestone which we couldn't have done without your help. Thank you! Now we want to make the Hauraki Rail Trail even better!

We have been working with local community partners to improve the ecology beside the Hauraki Rail Trail. We have been removing weed species and planting natives. Now we are looking at extending our work on eradicating pest species along the trail. Currently we have 117 pest control traps in operation and since 2017 we have caught 139 Stoats, 104 Rats, 96 Hedgehogs, and 3 Ferrets.

We want to extend this work through the Karangahake Gorge section and with community have raised over $3000 to start this trap line. The first of the traps will be in place over summer. New traps with boxes cost approx $50 each.

If you would like to support this project all donations are welcome, however small.
