The operation is being undertaken on behalf of TBfree New Zealand, with support from the Department of Conservation to protect local farms from tuberculosis infection and to enhance native biodiversity. Control Area: The Southern Rimutaka Aerial Project operational area is divided into two treatment areas Part One: Includes East Harbour Regional Park and adjoining private land. The area extends between Rata Ridge track in the north and the Parangarahu Lakes area in the south and is all situated west of Coast Road. Part Two: Includes the Rimutaka Forest Park (RFP) and some adjoining private land, south of Wainuiomata. The northern boundary includes the Wainui Trust Boys Brigade Camp, the East Whakanui track and the Papatahi Crossing. The western boundary runs along Graces Stream, the RFP access road at the Catchpool, highpoint Boyo trig 433m and Coast Road near Plumbago Stream. The southern boundary passes through Orongorongo station. The eastern boundary runs parallel with the Rimutaka cycle trail between Turakirae Head and Corner Creek, extending northwards to Wharepapa hut. A detailed map of the treatment area may be viewed by appointment at the office of Bioworks (see below), or on line at Commencement Date: Part one; non-toxic cereal pre-feed pellet baits have been applied in this area on Wednesday 26 April. The application of cereal pellets containing 1080 will commence from 8 May 2017 onwards, providing suitable weather conditions exist. Part two will commence with the application of non-toxic cereal pre-feed pellets beginning on the first day of favourable weather after part 1 has been completed. Following completion of pre-feeding, the application of cereal pellets containing 1080 will commence from 15 May 2017 onwards, providing suitable weather conditions exist. Bait Description: Pre-feed: Cereal based pellet, approximately 20mm long, coloured brown.

Precautions: The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs. Children should be kept under strict supervision in the operational area. Dogs should be kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken into the operational area as they are particularly susceptible to 1080 and poisoned carcasses.
