What’s happening already?

Every year the Mokaihaha Kōkako Trust carries out ground control of pests through a bait station network over 850 ha. This is complemented every third year by the Department of Conservation delivering an aerial 1080 operation to control pests over the entire 2,000 ha designated ecological area.
