Halo Project on Track

Halo Project on Track

It has been a busy summer and autumn, with even more traps being deployed in May and June this year. So far the project has achieved over 800 hectares of trapping protection on 7 farm properties. The goal is to have up to 1,600 hectares covered by Spring 2016. By the end of the establishment, the Halo project will cover up to 2,500 hectares with around 1,000 traps.

The halo project was fortunate to receive quad bike sponsorship via Union Yamaha, a quad bike is vital for this project, and will allow the halo ranger to access farms efficently.  So a big thanks again to Gerald Rooyakkers of Union Yamaha in Stratford (pictured above with Rotokare trustee Deborah Clough)
