The Wangapeka/Fyfe Whio Security Site is protected by a network of approximately 1,100 double-set stoat traps. The front country traps (approximately 240) are serviced by volunteers and students from Tapawera Area School. DOC staff perform the first and last trap check of each season, August and May respectively, or may, with four weeks’ notice to the Supplier, substitute other months.
The traps provide protection to nesting Whio, in conjunction with aerial 1080 application, when required.
• The objective of the Wangapeka/Fyfe Security Site is to establish a breeding population of at least 50 Whio pairs to help secure the future for this species.
• The project is managed through the Biodiversity Unit of the Motueka Office of the Department of Conservation.

The provider is to clear all back country traps (approximately 760 traps) of carcasses, re-bait and re-set to the required standard monthly for eight months of the year (September to April inclusive) for three years. The provider will supply the bait specified and arrange any helicopter transport required. The Buyer will pay for helicopter invoices.
