Rotokare Pest Monitoring - Full Sanctuary Tracking Card Run

  • Rotokare Scenic Reserve Trust Sangster Road Eltham New Zealand (map)

Biosecurity is one of the most important things we do at Rotokare ensuring the reserve remains pest free and safe for our native wildlife. We do regular monitoring to check we are free of pest animals and follow up on anything we find!

Recently we have had a couple of mice show up. We need your help to make sure there aren't more hiding in other parts of the reserve!

From Sunday, April 7th, we will be putting out tracking cards across the whole of the reserve. We're trying to get as much of the reserve done in one hit to give us a really good snapshot of whats going on so we need your help!

There are a range of different lines to suit a range of abilities and fitness levels. Training will be given on the day as required

Please bring warm clothes (which you don't mind getting dirty), good footwear for uneven surfaces (its wet and slippery in the bush, and can be steep in places), a drink and plenty of enthusiasm!

Our working bee runs from 9am-1230 with lunch provided afterwards (Please RSVP for catering purposes)

This is a great way to see different parts of the reserve and meet some of the awesome plants and animals which call Rotokare home.

Cards will be coming back in from Sunday April 14th and we'd love your help bringing all the cards back in :)
