Southland Girls Get Trapping! June-July 2022
Over the past month in June and July the environmental classes from Southland Girls High School have been learning all about predator control from Mark Oster. A few preliminary lessons were held at the school and in June/July two classes a week came out to our property each Wednesday and Thursday to put the learnings into practice. Traplines were set out, traps and tracking tunnels set up and over consecutive days each week the students checked the tracking tunnels and traps recording catches and footprints. Other statistics from Bushy Point from trapping and monitoring over many years were also supplied to teacher Mel Young so that students had a larger source of data to analyse. We look forward to hearing about their findings in due course. Thanks To Mel for photos.
