Over more than 20 years the Taranaki Regional Council (the Council) has developed and led a very successful Self-Help Possum Control Programme. The programme is a joint partnership between the Council and landowners, which has successfully maintained possums to low levels on privately owned land in the region.
The Council in conjunction with a range of key stakeholders are proposing a Rural Landscape Predator Control Programme covering the Egmont ring plain by utilising existing relationships with landowners. Along with possums, “predator” will now include Mustelids, Feral Cats, and Hedgehogs. This program is one of New Zealand’s largest predator control projects which will included 240,000ha of the Taranaki Ring plain.
This is the third year of operations for the Towards Predator Free Taranaki – Rural Predator Control Programme. Rural Predator Control Phase 3 operation covers three Self-help Possum Control Programmes; Okato, Warea and Rahotu and includes 316 landowners and is 29,000ha.
Five contract blocks are open for tender for the Towards Predator Free Taranaki - Rural Predator Control Phase 3. Applicants can tender for all the blocks or individual blocks, please see Towards Predator Free Taranaki - Rural Predator Control Phase 3 Tender Document and Operational Plan attached to this Request for Tenders.
