Nelson City Council’s Nelson Nature programme aims to protect and enhance native bird populations in Nelson.
This initiative is targeted in response to expected changes in bird abundance due to birds dispersing from the predator-free Brook Waimarama Sanctuary.
The area of predator control and habitat enhancement to enhance bird populations outside the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary is termed the Nelson Halo.
Nelson Nature has prepared an operational plan to guide the development and implementation of the Nelson Halo which is currently in draft.
There are a number of community groups and individuals in Nelson who are controlling introduced predators in parks and backyards with the goal of enhancing wildlife populations.
Coordination and support of existing and new community predator control initiatives is needed to develop the Nelson Halo and maximise outcomes for native bird populations in Nelson.
Council seeks a suitable contractor to provide coordination, technical advice and support of community predator control in the Nelson Halo.
Council expects that it will take the contractor approximately 2 days per week (delivered in whatever format the supplier chooses) to deliver the outcomes specified in Council’s requirements as described in Appendix 2 – Requirements.
The objectives of Community Predator Control Coordination Services are:
(a) To coordinate community predator control initiatives in the Nelson Halo
(b) To work with the community to increase the effectiveness of their predator control initiatives
