Friends of A’Deane’s Bush
Long term eco-restoration of flora and fauna of A'Deane's Bush and surrounding area. This includes predator control with 50 traps within the bush and 45 traps in the halo - effectively trapping close to 1000ha now. Rats are controlled through a bait station grid. Old mans beard is controlled annually, locally sourced and grown natives are used to revegetate the area around the Bush, and native species are surveyed annually to see the response to predator control. Tititipounamu /Rifleman, which have been locally extinct for many years, have been re-introduced to the Bush and are establishing a population there.
