Cape to City
The Cape to City project has been underway since May 2015 as the next big push on pest control in Hawke’s Bay.
The 5 year project is located between Cape Kidnappers and the Tukituki Valley. It is targeting ferrets, stoats, rats, hedgehogs and feral cats - as well as possums - over 26,000 hectares. A key element is assessing the use and efficiency of new technology to make pest control easier over large areas.
This project is jointly funded over 5 years (until 2020) by a partnership between the Aotearoa Foundation, the Department of Conservation, Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, Landcare Research and Cape Sanctuary (privately funded restoration project).
Hawke’s Bay Regional Council is providing support and advisory services.
