Rat caught and now takahe released from pens

Date posted: 28-Jan-2018
Thankfully DOC staff Andre de Graaf and Polly Hall and their assistants have trapped the rat which had arrived on the Island a few days ago. Monitoring will continue for a while just in case there was more than one, but the poison baits and traps have been removed or unset.

Our takahe had been penned up to avoid any risk to them from the traps or baits. DOC had decided to keep them in the pens for another two or three weeks to complete their annual health checks and vaccinations. It's stressful for the birds to catch them for health care checks but catching penned birds is easier and causes less stress.

2nd February: Stop press


All our takahe have now been released from their pens. The health checks and vaccinations were completed on Wednesday 31st January and, while all the birds were looking fit, and most were excellent weights, it was felt that they were at risk of losing condition while held in the pens. After consultation with DOC staff from the takahe recovery team, the birds were released into their usual territories where, hopefully, visitors will be able to see them.
