Alert Mt Aspiring – Predator control for Makarora valleys area

A predator control operation will take place to apply biodegradable aerial 1080. Access to tracks within the treatment area may be restricted until bait is cleared from them, this is generally completed on the day of application. Predator control could occur any day after 1 September 2019 depending on weather conditions.

As part of the predator control operation non-toxic prefeed will be aerially applied a minimum of five days before applying 1080 bait. Tracks will not close during this time, but visitors should be aware of falling bait if below a helicopter.

The operation is part of Tiakina Ngā Manu, DOC's successful predator control programme that protects vulnerable wildlife.
