Trust Wins A 2011 Green Ribbon Award
"The Pomona Island Charitable Trust is absolutely stoked to have our work restoring Pomona and Rona Islands recognised at a national
level. Last week John and I had the pleasure of receiving a Green Ribbon Award for protecting our biodiversity at an awards ceremony at parliament. The award was presented by leader of the Green Party Russel Norman and Minister for the Environment Nick Smith. We were really honoured to accept the award on behalf of the Trust and everyone in the community who has supported us over the years.

We'd like to take this opportunity to say a big thank to you all, because, without your help, restoring Pomona and Rona Islands would not have been possible."
Viv Shaw, Trust Secretary

Update on Recent Efforts Against Rats on Pomona - March 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 6 months, we have not caught a single rat.
