Director General visits Southern Lakes Sanctuary

Listed: 5th May 2023

Its really important that we can share our mahi and ensure those who fund us and plan Conservation in New Zealand understand the work we are doing. Earlier in May we took the Director General of Department of Conservation – Penny Nelson – to see some of the areas we plan to release takahe in the Dart Valley. We introduced her, the Deputy Director General Mike Tully and the South Island Operations Manager Aaron Fleming to the landowners who are supporting us in our trapping and predator removal efforts – Iris and Kate Scott and Amanda and Mark Hassleman. We showed some of the new technologies we are using in mammalian predator control and introduced some of our partners and partner groups. Whilst the weather wasn’t amazing, the Southern Lakes Sanctuary area never disappoints.
