Predator exclusion fence under way
THIS week Whinray Eco Trust started the first stages of its latest predator exclusion fence at Motu.
“This project connects to our kiwi chick creche and will hold a range of endangered Tairawhiti plants, gecko, skinks, invertebrates and hopefully tuatara,” the trust wrote in a Facebook post.
When completed, visitors will be able to walk through and meet tuatara in their natural habitat.
“It will be a great science field classroom for schools,” the trust said.
The trust is looking for volunteers to help with the project. People can ring trustee Steve Sawyer on 027 209 6049.
