Trust Wins 2016 Southland Community Environment Achiever Award
Following a recent meeting with judges from Environment Southland, the Trust has been named as a winner in the Achiever category of the 2016 Southland Community Environment Awards. This award recognises our recent work reducing rat numbers on Pomona and mouse numbers on Rona, both to undetectable levels. The whole Trust is grateful to the volunteers and financial supporters that have enabled us to achieve this.

Update on Recent Efforts against Rats on Pomona - July 2016
Since the end of August 2013, an extensive trapping network has been established on Pomona, complementing the extensive bait station network. The Trust is grateful to the large number of volunteers that have helped to clear these traps and refill the bait stations on a very regular basis. A graph showing the effect on rat catches is available here. The reduction in rat numbers is very clear. In the last 10 months, we have not caught a single rat.
