Halo Project progress update
The Halo Project has now been operational for 15 months! There are 15 community groups engaged so far, made up of 70 keen volunteers who regularly head out to check traps. We’ve got trapping networks across two thirds of the 3’900 ha Inner Halo area – we’ve nearly got Orokonui Ecosanctuary surrounded. So far we’ve caught over 270 pests, the highest catches being ship rats, hedgehogs and stoats. Full steam ahead!
