We’re glad to have another Biosecurity Field Officer join the Possum Free Whangārei Heads team! Holly is a multigenerational Whangārei Heads local and loves being able to work in the place she calls home.
The 9,100+ ha possum elimination project in the Whangārei Heads has now been operationally active for almost 18 months – how is this progressing?
From endemic bats, to geckos, to invertebrates, to kiwi! Join us on a journey through Whangārei’s wondrous landscapes to meet the unique native species that call this place home. Kia mōhio koe ki ēnei taonga o te taiao. Get to know these treasures of nature.
The Possum Free Whangārei Heads project is asking for help from the community to report possum sightings from the area.
Where is the possum eradication project at? How many possums have been caught? What are the next steps? Find the answers in this article here.
Each year we survey areas around Whangārei to find out more about the pest mammal populations in our city. This is crucial for the work we do to make sure we are on track to achieving our objective of becoming a predator free city! We can’t do this without the data to support us, so we use these surveys as a way to inform what we do, how we do it and where we do it!
