Nelson City Council (Council) manages 8800 ha of land in the Maitai River and Roding River catchments as Local Purpose Reserves under the Reserves Act 1977. These catchments provide Nelson City’s water supply and are managed to protect water quality and natural values.
The purpose of this contract is to plan and execute a search and destroy operation annually for three years in the Maitai and Roding Water Reserves in Nelson. The target is goats, but deer and pigs are to be destroyed if encountered.
In year one, control work will focus on a core area of 4677 ha to protect sensitive vegetation types. From year two, this will be expanded to encompass the full 7229 ha area shown on the map in Appendix 4.
The objectives of this work are:
(a) To effectively hunt the control area such that the entire area is searched and all resident goats are destroyed.
(b) To destroy any deer and pigs that are encountered within the operational area.
The Council’s requirements are as described in Appendix 2 – Requirements.
