On 17th May 2011, I wrote to DOC offering to manage the Shag Point penguin area for the penguins as I was dropping my work hours from 4 days a week to 3 and felt that we could make a useful contribution to conservation there. This week, we finally signed a permit to do predator control there. This is thanks to tireless work by our trustee Elaine Burgess who was prepared to jump through all the hoops and as soon as DOC have removed the pigs and repaired the fence we can start making the place safe again. We have traps ready to go!
Have a great week!
