We are very grateful for the specialised new pest trapping system Ngati Kuia has donated to the Trust.
This calm and occasionally wet autumn is going to be an abundant season for the beautiful Kohe Kohe trees.
Despite the rain a group of Department of Conservation Nelson Ranger Trainees were unstoppable as they erected a new section of predator diverting fence on a slippery and steep hillside of the Tui Nature Reserve in Outer Pelorus Sound.
On Wednesday the 10th of April we had an unexpected visit from Scots boys College. And what a pleasure it was, we had a great time showing them around and telling them all about life on the reserve, predator control and conservation.
Glorious Water – 27 February
A little mile stone has been created, we have water coming up 24/7, to the full 180 meter vertical height of the property. The two abandoned water rams have been put back into business. Norm, Mike and Liam have put a lot of work in trying to get them going again. Even gone as far as bringing them back to town, taking them apart, putting them back together reconditioned and trialling them in a similar situation before the water rams went back to Tui.
After a beautiful calm ride on the Pelorus Mailboat the group of the Blenheim Rotary Club arrived on an overcast day, perfect for walking up the hill.
February has been a mega busy month as Leona, who was 'back up' to go to Macquarie Island had the call that one of the dog handlers was unable to go.
We have received a generous funding approval of $10.000 to help cover cost towards predator control and the diverting fence.
Finally made it!
It has taken us almost 20 years but we finally walked the Nydia track.
