Pateke are an endemic duck whose decline throughout New Zealand is largely due to introduced predators and habitat destruction. The Teal Bay/Mimiwhangata/Whananaki/Whangaruru coast is one of the last remaining strongholds for this species, and is home to at least 600 birds.
Predator control, particularly of stoats and cats, is crucial to their survival, and has been refined over many years by the Pateke Recovery Group to provide protection for Pateke and allow their numbers to increase.
The contract requires services to undertake predator trapping operations on both Public Conservation land (Mimiwhangata Coastal Park) and private land in the Teal Bay, Whananaki and Whangaruru areas between 1 July 2017 and 30th June 2026.
The Director-General has established 641 trap sites across these areas which are to be serviced weekly or fortnightly, or monthly depending on the site and season. Bait supply and preparation is included in the services required.
