Priests descend on Blackball B

lackball was the chosen destination of 12 Catholic priests from the Christchurch Diocese for an annual retreat last week. In recent years the priests have gathered at Hanmer Springs, but this year opted for the historic coalmine town, staying at Formerly the Blackball Hilton.

“We've had different venues and in recent years it has been Hanmer Springs, but the difference in coming to Blackball is that we were able to spend the days living together in the same place, we weren't spread out,” Father John O'Connor said. The priests mixed with the locals in a relaxed setting, joining in conversation and the odd cool ale at the bar.

“It was great to be able to play pool with the locals we had great fun meeting them and other guests in the breaks between our sessions.” Fr O'Connor said the tradition of the annual gathering began about 40 years ago, when it was realised that priests needed more support from each other. “During our Monday to Friday gathering we each take 10 to 15 minutes to share the

80 Westport Performing Arts contest th

n by Rose O'Connor in Westport

T

he 80th Westport Performing Arts Competition Society event was held in the first week of the school holidays. Secretary Carol Keoghan said numbers of entries were similar to last year. “Covid restrictions meant we had to organise the competitions in a different way. The Monday afternoon was just for speech, drama and music. Tap was reserved for Tuesday and Wednesday with Wednesday evening through to Saturday being the 'fancy' dancing. We were unable to hold the traditional demonstration concert at the end of the event,” Mrs Keoghan said, Westport had recently been hit hard with high numbers of Covid cases. “This has meant that local dance classes have been very disrupted for the last four or so weeks. Committee members, dance teachers and students have all been effected. While there have been many scratchings, most group dances went ahead. While there may have originally been eight to ten dancers, they just carried on with two or three in some cases. It is just the way it is this time.”

Dancers from Karamea, Greymouth, Christchurch, Nelson, Motueka, Blenheim and as far away as Invercargill attended the competitions. Mrs Keoghan said the committee ran a 'Monkey Survey' a few years ago to determine how much money the event brought into Westport and they were surprised at how the local businesses benefited. “It is a great event for our town and local businesses. The restaurants and cafés, accommodation and shops are booming. It is a bonus for the town. “We are very grateful for the flexibility and tolerance of the competitors, spectators, judges, volunteers and well everyone involved. We really are grateful for the good audiences and attendance and the patience of the people,” Mrs Keoghan said. She was also thankful to the local businesses who donated spot prizes and sponsored the event. No raffle could be held due to the 'shared' pen needing to be used. “The standard of dancing has been amazing especially considering the interruptions to the dancing schedules.” Legacy Dance won the 'National Young Performer Troupe of the Year,' which included four ex-Buller dancers. Holly Palmer of Christchurch and ex-local Ruby Casey of Nelson won the tap nominations. AvaWilliamson was ready for her barefoot dance.

Hokitika school's new hall opened

Westland High School head students Demi Pearson, left, and Jesse Jones inside the school's brand new hall, which was blessed and officially opened last week in Hokitika. The old Armstrong Assembly Hall and adjoining staffroom block was destroyed by fire in 2016, and the school has waited six years for the opportunity to again enjoy assemblies and events back on site. The new facilities include a music and performing arts suite, green room and rehearsal area, stage and recording rooms, as well as a new sound and lighting system and acoustic panelling.

Great Rides Deserve Great Riders Motorcycle riding is a popular activity on the West Coast, and it’s easy to see why. There’s long, often empty, open roads and plenty of corners for those who enjoy riding twists and turns. But motorbike riding on the coast is not for the faint-hearted. It takes skill and plenty of know-how to keep out of trouble. “Unlike a car driver, a rider isn’t protected by a metal case around them and when things go wrong, the consequences can be devastating,” according to Ride Forever instructor Jason Howcroft. ACC stats show that riders on the coast are more likely to end up coming to grief and needing to place a claim with ACC than riders in other parts of the country. That’s why Ride Forever has stepped up its presence here and is now offering courses in all three districts. Ride Forever is an ACC initiative, aimed at giving riders access to world-class training so they can get the best out of every ride. Heavily subsidised by ACC, courses start from as little as $20. The other provider on the coast, Dan Ornsby, is well known to locals. A veteran of the Greymouth Street races and a former national-level racer, Dan and his team love to share their passion for riding by helping other riders up-skill and ride smarter.

Dan Ornsby and his team of trainers

In addition to becoming a better rider, if you’ve held your full licence for two years and

complete a Ride Forever Gold course, you’ll receive $200 back on your motorcycle registration through ACC’s cashback offer. “Given a full-day Gold course costs only $50, you’ll come out on the winning side financially and you’ll have improved your riding experience to boot. Why wouldn’t you?” says Dan. If you’ve not yet got your full licence, the Bronze and Silver courses are perfect preparation for restricted and full licence assessments. Both providers also offer CBTA assessments on the coast. And as an added incentive, everyone who signs up for a Ride Forever course before the end of June 2022 goes into the draw to win a GoPro Hero 10. To find out when the next courses are available, contact the trainers or check out their websites. Jason works out of Buller and Dan looks after Grey and Westland Districts.

Warning after canine cough outbreak

T

he Veterinary Council of New Zealand (VCNZ) is reminding dog owners to keep an eye out for symptoms of canine cough in their pets, as the virus is having a resurgence across the country. The clinical name for canine cough (also known as kennel cough) is canine infectious respiratory disease (CIRD) or infectious tracheobronchitis. The symptoms of this highly contagious respiratory disease can include your dog having a loud and high pitched cough, that sounds like there is something stuck in their throat or a goose honk; loss of appetite; low energy; retching or hacking; and nasal discharge. Coughing can linger for several weeks. VCNZ professional adviser Seton Butler says the outbreak of canine cough in New Zealand could be due to more dogs socialising during the

recent school holidays and as a result of Covid-19 restrictions easing with dogs and owners mixing more. He says the best way to minimise the risk of your dog catching canine cough is to make sure they receive their annual vaccinations. Symptoms in vaccinated dogs are also less severe, if they do contract the illness. “Your dog will benefit from getting an annual vaccination, and also seeing a veterinarian regularly. By taking your dog to see a veterinarian, you're building that relationship like you do with your own GP. They get to know your pet and can tell when something isn't quite right.” Seton says canine cough can be tricky to manage because it is complex, often being caused by both a bacteria and viruses. It spreads easily by aerosol between dogs through

sniffing, sharing water bowls, and coughing and sneezing. If your dog is unwell, it is important to keep them at home and away from other dogs. If the symptoms aren't improving or getting worse, you should take them to the vet. “Canine cough is not Covid-19 but there are some similarities in how it's managed, such as isolating and getting vaccinated,” Seton says. “It is especially important to get your dog vaccinated if they have an upcoming stay in a boarding kennel.

“You can also call the kennel in advance to check how they manage the risk of canine cough, such as using fans to deliver fresh air and cleaning down common areas. You may want to ask if the kennel has had any cases of canine cough recently, and if so, see if a friend of family member can look after your dog while you're away. “Planning ahead will help you do your best to protect your dog,” Seton says.

Moana’s busy cycleway volunteer

A

newly retired Christchurch man who rolled into Moana in his caravan to do some voluntary work ended up staying for four months and becoming a linchpin of the new cycleway project. The Lake Brunner Scenic Trail will eventually connect Moana and Mitchells. By Easter Weekend the volunteers had completed 4.2km – almost halfway. Retired businessman Simon Curry has had baches at Moana through the years (and his wife worked at the school), and he was

invited back by friend and track construction manager Phil Wilkins. Mr Curry, a former builder, ran the Subaru rally teams in New Zealand, Australia and Asia, had a motorsport parts import business, and is also a mechanic. Unsurprisingly, he is also a “mad keen cyclist”. Out on the Lake Brunner cycle track, he found he could turn his hand to everything, from operating excavators to cutting vegetation. He arrived in Moana in January, intending to spend four weeks. Four months later he was still there. He typically rides a quad bike in each morning, as he has to carry the fuel, and starts about 8.30am, finishing about 4.30pm.

WITH every year that passes, time seems to move faster than it ever did. Matariki is almost here, signalling that the Maori new year is upon us while the Gregorian year 2022 is almost halfway through. Matariki falls on June 24 and, for the first time, the country will celebrate that date as a public holiday. I'm particularly proud of this. Our Government, taking its lead from the rangatira and tohunga who study Matariki, had the foresight to mark the day as an official public holiday. On the West Coast the haukainga are marking the day with a dawn hakari from 4am to 5am and traditional storytelling and stargazing whanau from Poutini Ngai Tahu. It's a privilege to access this kind of knowledge and enjoy this kind of hospitality, and so we mihi to Poutini Ngai Tahu for their generosity in sharing the morning and the day with those who are keen to learn more. I'm also proud of Matariki as a public

Coming into winter, he intends to take a break to visit his children in Australia and recharge the batteries, but he plans to return to Moana. “My weakness is once I get my teeth into something, I can't stop. I keep going back, I enjoy it.” He would encourage others to head to volunteer their time at Lake Brunner, even if it is for the odd day. “It's the most gorgeous part of the country, and the warmest lake in the South Island. “It's not on the main tourist trail.” Winters were mild, he said, and not like Canterbury. “A good winter’s day is pretty hard to beat.”

holiday for policy reasons too. The new domestic holiday is going to help boost domestic tourism as we prepare to reopen the border and welcome international visitors from July 31. Tourism providers have done it tough over the course of the pandemic. Visitor numbers are low, and with that comes a decrease in the export earnings. But with the decision to bring the border reopening date forward to July tourism providers on the Coast can prepare to reconnect and plan for new visitor peaks. Those tourism providers, alongside hospitality businesses, can and have accessed support as well. In the last two years $600m has been invested across the country in targeted support to the tourism sector. That's important because tourism was, and will be, one of our largest sectors. Kanoa, the Regional Development Unit, has managed support worth $72m in the West Coast alone. Funding from the Government

Greymouth man Peter O'Sullivan heads the trust behind the cycle trail. He said volunteers who came to work alongside the locals had been a godsend. “They advance the trail, and also provide a linchpin.” So far, 90% of the work had been done by volunteers, and all that was required was enthusiasm, Mr O’Sullivan said. Volunteers could help rake the track, plant trees, or drive diggers and dumpers. They will get a site and safety induction over the weekend, so they would prefer people to volunteer for a minimum of a week. Anyone interested can e-mail lakebrunnerscenictrail@gmail.com

through the Provincial Growth Fund, the Tourism Communities: Support, Recovery and Reset Plan and its special kickstart fund, the Tourism Infrastructure Fund, and many others have helped and are helping businesses to hit the ground running for the return of international visitors. On the Maori tourism front the Government's provided funding for the Maori Business Response Tapoi programme which is designed to provide tailored support to Maori tourism businesses as they recover from the impacts of Covid-19. Providing business advice for those affected, we want these Maori businesses to be able to invest in their region and the future. Tourism operators across both the West Coast and Te Waipounamu have been working extraordinarily hard to stay connected with the visitor economy and the travel, culture, hospitality and recreation sectors. Given all of that hard work, support

Quarries closed temporarily OPERATIONS in the West Coast Regional Council's quarries have been temporarily halted. Chief executive Heather Mabin said there were two reasons for the decision to pause in operations. “The contract we have with our current operator, MBD, is up for renewal, which is an opportunity to reset the future,” Ms Mabin said. “Pausing operations now gives us the ability to reassess our internal processes, update and develop the information requirements before we go out to the market with a tender for an operations contract for each quarry individually.” Ms Mabin said the council was working closely with the current contractors to ensure that any current commitments for rock could still be met. “Work to fulfil commitments will be completed in the next fortnight with rock to be stockpiled for use. The quarry tender process is then likely to take until the end of June 2023.” The council has managed quarries across the region to supply the rating districts with rock for maintaining river and coastal protection works for many years. The council also supplies rock to individual customers. It had previously decided to consider the results from a tender process of the mining permits for the developed Blackball, Kiwi, Camelback and Okuru quarries but this decision is now on hold. The demand for rock from quarries is driven by the need to maintain works or build new protection works, plus private sales. Some years see high demand for rock and therefore the quarries run a surplus, while in other years the quarries can run at a loss. The regional council also currently administers rock quarries at the following locations: Miedema Rock Deposit (Karamea), Blackball (in abeyance), Cobden (being rehabilitated), Kiwi Point (in abeyance), Inchbonnie, Camelback and Okuru.

should be available and I'm glad that the Government is providing it. However, that comes with the recognition that the old tourism model that relied on migrant labour and everincreasing visitor numbers and carbon emissions isn't sustainable. And so a good deal of funding has gone towards funding a more sustainable, regenerative model that prioritises preserving the environment alongside training local workers. The West Coast has no shortage of tourism opportunities for visitors, domestic or international, and from bike trails to glacier flights the Government has worked with these businesses to ensure they have stayed afloat over an unprecedented two-year period. But it's important to remember that much of this tourism relies on preserving the pristine environment. And that is something to consider this Matariki. Papatuanuku. Manawatia a Matariki!

Five generations and counting n by Claire Ward in Reefton

A

Reefton woman is celebrating five living generations. Kerrie Eder's father Michael Thompson is 80, while the matriarch of the family, Lilly May Hart, is 102. Kerrie's son Daniel is 38 and grandson Devon Carter, 18. “On my parents' 60th wedding anniversary, dad got a card from his mum,” Kerrie said. Kerrie's family are obviously a hardy lot, as her great granny Lilly, who is fully vaccinated but has had Covid twice, is still fit and lucid and lives independently in her own home. Lily's mother also lived to be over 100. “She went to a family member's 21st a wee while ago, and was the last one to leave at 2am,” Kerrie laughed. Family matriarch, Lilly May Hart, 102.

Senior Living 2022 Here to help you look after your eyes

E

yesight is precious and seeing well is more important as we get older. Eyes change more quickly from age 50 onwards, and are more likely to have problems that could seriously affect your sight. A regular comprehensive eye examination – at least every two years – is the best way to keep your eyes and vision as good and healthy as possible. Winter brings more challenges for eye comfort and vision including dry eyes from home heating or needing to see better for everything you do indoors on the rainy day. The three independent optometrists on the West Coast are skilled and experienced, and have the right equipment to check for eye disease. Their

friendly staff are happy to help with a great selection of eyewear for when you need glasses. Being an independent optometrist and not part of a chain means that each of the Coast's optometrists has the flexibility to choose and decide what is best for you. This means you don't have to travel for that extra care and expertise. Noel Templeton in Westport, John West at Coast Optometrist in Greymouth, and Catherine van Paassen at Hokitika Optometrist can give you the best advice because we know the conditions and challenges that affect people who live on the Coast. We are here to help you take care of your eyes and eyesight, and look forward to seeing you soon.

GM457980-S

Vector Free Marlborough Limited (VFML) wishes to advise the public of its intention to aerially apply the toxin Sodium fluoroacetate (1080) to parts of the Westland, South Westland Alps and Westcoast Divide TMA’s for the purpose of controlling possums. The Otira – Taipo operation is being carried out on behalf of OSPRI as part of its TBfree New Zealand programme, which aims to eradicate bovine tuberculosis from wildlife vectors that pose a risk to farmed cattle herds in downstream areas. Description of area The Otira – Taipo permission area takes in approximately 30,930 hectares of the Otira and Taipo catchments. The boundary of the permission area extends from the SH73 bridge over Big Wainihinihi River to Aickens corner near the confluence of the Otira and Taramakau rivers, then follows Aicken Ridge upstream toward Goat Pass at the head of the Deception Valley. From Goat Pass it extends west along the snowline of the Southern Alps, crosses SH73 at the summit of Arthurs Pass and continues west into the headwaters of the Taipo catchment. From the Taipo catchment it follows the Campbell Range in a northerly direction, thence along Razorback Ridge to Big Wainihinhi River. Most land in the permission area is administered by the Department of Conservation but several small tracts of land held by various private and institutional owners are also included. The nearest settlement is Otira Village which is excluded from the operation. A detailed map may be obtained from VFML as per contact details below. Commencement date Control is scheduled to commence from June 1, 2022, with the aerial application of non-toxic cereal pre-feed pellets. This will be followed approximately 7-10 days later by the aerial application of bait containing biodegradable sodium fluoroacetate (1080). All work is weather dependent, and commencement may be later than indicated. In the event of an extended delay, further notices will be placed to advise the public. Bait Description • Pre-feed - Non-toxic cereal-based pellet, approximately 16mm long and cinnamon-lured. Prefeed for this operation will be dyed green as part of a suite of measures to minimise risk to kea. • Toxic bait - Cereal-based pellet, approximately 20mm long, cinnamon- lured and dyed green with a toxic loading of 0.15% Sodium fluoroacetate (1080). Note, hand-laid 1080 may be used for supplemental ground-based control in areas unsuited for aerial application. Precautions The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs. • DO NOT TOUCH OR EAT BAITS • Children must be kept under strict supervision in the control area • Dogs must be kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken into, the control area, as they are particularly susceptible to harm from contact with toxic baits and poisoned carcasses. The risk that poisoned carcasses pose to dogs may extend downstream of the control area. • Toxin warning signs will be installed at main public entry points and the public are reminded that it is an offence to remove this warning signage. Please follow the instructions on the signs. • Game animals should not be sold or taken for eating from within or adjacent to this area until it is declared clear of pesticides. If you suspect poisoning • Contact your local hospital, or dial 111 • National Poisons Centre 0800 POISON - 0800 764 766 • In the case of a domestic animal being poisoned, contact a local veterinarian For further information please contact: Operation Controller Otira - Taipo Vector Free Marlborough Limited PO Box 5171, Springlands, Blenheim 7241 Free Phone: 0508 548 008 E-mail: communications@vectorfree.co.nz Website: www.vectorfree.co.nz OSPRI helps protect and enhance the reputation of New Zealand’s primary industries and currently runs the TBfree and National Animal Identification and Tracing (NAIT) programmes.

Ask a P R O F E S S I O N A L What is an Enduring Power of Attorney, and do I need one? An Enduring Power of Attorney (or EPA) is a document that sets out who can make decisions about your personal and financial affairs when you aren't able to do so (e.g., if you became unwell, had an accident, or lost mental capacity). It's like having an insurance policy to cover the possibility you might need someone else to act and make decisions for you. Many people think their spouse, partner or children will be able to deal with those matters, but this is not usually the case. Your partner may be able to operate bank accounts in joint names but will not be able to sell your house, deal with your superannuation or make significant decisions about your personal care and welfare. There are two types of EPA’s. The first is an EPA for Personal Care and Welfare which appoints one person at a time to make decisions for you about things like what medical treatment you

will receive and where you will live. You can also appoint successor attorneys in case your first named attorney dies or loses capacity. The second is an EPA for Property. You can appoint one or more people for this type of EPA to act jointly or severally. You can also appoint successor attorneys in case your first named attorney(s) cannot act. Your attorney for property can manage your bank accounts, pay your bills, sell your house and generally deal with your property within any limits you may place on their power to act. You can appoint the same person to act as your attorney for both Property and for Personal Care and Welfare, or you can appoint different people for each EPA. You can have your EPA for Property come into effect immediately (useful if you are physically incapacitated due to illness or injury

or if you spend time overseas,) or you can have it come into effect only if you lose capacity. In contrast, an EPA for Personal Care and Welfare only comes into effect if you are unable to make decisions, or if you are unable to communicate your decisions. Your attorney must be at least 20 years of age, must not be bankrupt and must have mental capacity. We recommend everyone has an EPA in place - If you don’t and you lose capacity, someone will need to make an application to the Family Court for the appointment of a Welfare Guardian/ Property Manager to act for you. The Court may appoint whoever it wants, including a person who is not known to you, or a Trustee Corporation. It is therefore better to plan in advance with your own attorney.

The womb is a child’s first home. Are you pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant? If the answer is yes, and you smoke, then please take some time to consider this: • The womb is a child’s first home. • Inhaled smoke contains poisons that pass through the placenta and affect your baby’s health. • Inhaled smoke delivers carbon monoxide instead of oxygen to your baby, meaning your baby’s heart must work much harder to cope with less oxygen. • It means you’re at risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth and your baby being born weak. • Your baby could become asthmatic, have glue ear and has a higher risk for SUDI (Sudden unexpected death of an infant). All parents want the best start for their baby. You are 4 times more likely to stop smoking with support than if you go it alone, and free support is available on the West Coast! Stop smoking support people walk alongside you in your journey to be smokefree, for you and your baby.

Stopping smoking is one of the best decisions you will ever make, for you and your baby. Being smokefree, can be hard. Talk to your LMC who can refer you to the ‘Smokefree pregnancy and newborn incentives programme.’ To support you in this journey, you will get a New World grocery voucher for just meeting with a stop smoking support person, whether you continue with the programme or not. If you continue with the programme you will continue to get vouchers for being smokefree during your

pregnancy and for up to 4 months after baby is born. Your partner/support person can get vouchers for becoming smokefree too. Stop smoking support people are kind and nonjudgmental and they know how hard it can be to stop smoking. They work with you wherever you live and whatever your circumstances to give you the support you need to deal with smoking. We really recommend you give it a go. Talk with your LMC about this or contact me at the West Coast Primary Health Organisation

Ask a P R O F E S S I O N A L I am self-employed, can I have a KiwiSaver Scheme? I am self-employed, can I have a KiwiSaver Scheme? KiwiSaver is a savings initiative to motivate New Zealanders to save for their retirement. To be eligible for KiwiSaver you must normally live in New Zealand and have a legal right to be here. Since it started in 2007, eligible new employees have been automatically enrolled into KiwiSaver schemes unless they opt out within the timeframe allowed. This has been quite effective in generating members, as there are currently more than 3 million members in New Zealand. Once you are a member, you are locked in, and you can only have one

KiwiSaver scheme. For the self-employed, you need to opt in by contacting a KiwiSaver Scheme provider directly and apply to join them. Different providers will have different rules about the frequency and amount the of contributions you will need to make. Also, each provider will have a range of funds that have varying investments and fees. You should do some research or seek investment advice before you make your choice. If you are aged between 18 and 65, you will have access to the government contribution. The government will pay 50c for each $1 you put into

your KiwiSaver up to a maximum of $521.43 each year. The KiwiSaver year ends on 30 June, so contribute $1,042.86 to your KiwiSaver by the end of next month to ensure you get the maximum government contribution. Your contributions can be paid directly to your provider or via Inland Revenue. To pay to Inland Revenue, you can use your internet banking’s ‘pay tax’ option, enter your IRD number and use the tax type KSS. This would be the method we would recommend if it is getting close to the 30th of June or if you were previously an employee and you are uncertain who your KiwiSaver scheme is with.

Information hidden in plain sight Every organisation has its own treasure trove of valuable information. Be it a client list, customer database, supplier directory, members register and so on. A properly managed database can yield valuable insights that can assist organisations to better meet the needs of its customers, members and clients. At times organisations need to expand or add to their information, and there are numerous ways in which to gather new data. Surveys, feedback forms, mail drops, email outs, sales promotions, giveaways…. One lesser-known method is data scraping also known as web scraping; a technique

that can be as simple as using existing software such as Excel to extract data from a web site, and store it in a spreadsheet, where it can be analysed; to using more automated tools such as web scraper software or web browser addons. To be clear, data scraping is merely collecting publicly accessible information that exists on a website, and using software to automate the data collection process, instead of manually. There’s no nefarious or illegal accessing of information. It’s one of the most efficient ways to get data from the web, and in some cases to channel that data to another website. Popular uses of data scraping include:

ERIC MARTINI | Technology Specialist Byte -Mawhera Digital Hub

1 Guinness St, Greymouth | PH 03 738 2983

• Research for web content/business intelligence • Pricing for travel booker sites/price comparison sites • Finding sales leads/conducting market research by crawling public data sources • Sending product data from an e-commerce site to another online vendor And that list’s just scratching the surface. Data scraping has a vast number of applications – it’s useful in just about any case where data needs to be moved from one place to another. The basics of data scraping are relatively easy to master.

Protecting taonga native species with predator control in Arawhata

The Department of Conservation plans to reduce possums, rats, and stoats in Arawhata and the Haast Tokoeka Kiwi Sanctuary over an area of 49,338ha. (See attached map).

SERVICES INCLUDE: General Engineering Hydraulic ram servicing Transport Engineering House beams Structural steel Machine shop Certified welding Hardened pins and bushes Site works

Description of the area The Arawhata aerial operation is planned for large-scale pest control and covers both sides of the Arawhata River which encompasses the catchment and headwaters of Arawhata River and includes just the lower areas on the true left of Waitoto River. The coastal swampy areas surrounding Mt McLean and Lake Nisson are within the treatment area. The western boundary is the coast of Jackson Bay with the Southern Alps on the eastern boundary. Why we are controlling rats and stoats The Haast Tokoeka is New Zealand’s rarest taxa (subgroup) of kiwi. Their stronghold is in the Haast Tokoeka Sanctuary area, but they have also been identied in the Upper Arawhata and Selbourne range areas living from the swamp lowland to alpine areas. Other threatened species within the forests are in some trouble, including the South Island kākā, rock wren, and Cascades Forest gecko. Rats and stoats are the main predators. Scarlet mistletoe is under browse threat from possums. The area is predominantly remote steep and rugged backcountry. Predator control works Aerial application of cereal pellets containing 1080 is the most effective rat, stoat, and possum control method over large areas. It is currently the best method in remote, rugged terrain. Ground based trapping and bait stations are effective in smaller more accessible areas; however, the number of predators can overwhelm trapping networks.

42 Jacks Road, Greymouth

Phone 768 0135

Fax 768 0132

Method of predator control DOC is working closely with its Treaty Partner Te Runanga o Makaawhio and Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu on desired outcomes and have consulted with stakeholders and the community. Between May 20, 2022 and July 13, 2022 DOC and Vector Control Services will apply baits containing biodegradable 1080 over the area shown on the map. A pre-feed of non-toxic baits will occur rst which will prime the possums to eat the pellets. The toxic cereal bait pellets contain 0.15% of 1080, are cylindrical and approximately 2 cm in diameter. They are dyed green to deter birds and contain a cinnamon lure to attract possums. Non-toxic pre-feed cylindrical pellets are approximately 2 cm in diameter and sandy coloured (not-dyed). The aerial operation uses calibrated buckets and GIS mapping technology to ensure bait drops in the designated area. Please see map attached. The pesticide is poisonous to humans and domestic animals. Always remember: • DO NOT touch or eat the bait • WATCH CHILDREN at all times • DO NOT EAT animals from this area • Toxic baits and carcasses are DEADLY to DOGS Observe these rules whenever you see warning signs placed at the public access ways in the above areas. Warning signs indicate that pesticide residues may still remain in baits and carcasses, possibly for more than six months. If you suspect poisoning Always contact: Your local doctor or local hospital or the National Poisons Centre: 0800 764 766 (urgent calls) or 03 479 7248 or dial 111. For further information Contact DOC’s Awarua/Haast Visitor Centre, 03 750 0809 or Vector Control Services, 388 Main South Road, Greymouth 0508 141 268. Visit www.doc.govt.nz/tiakina-nga-manu A detailed map of the application area may be viewed or online at https://maps.doc.govt.nz/ Arawhata planned protection: 49,338 ha

TARAMAKAU POSSUM GROUND CONTROL - POSSUM WARNING Vector Free Marlborough Limited wishes to advise that a ground-based possum control operation will be taking place to keep possum numbers under control to prevent the spread of bovine tuberculosis to livestock. It is important that we keep possum numbers low, as we work towards eradicating TB from New Zealand over the long term. This operation will be conducted as a part of OSPRI’s TBfree programme. Description of control area The project area is situated in the Upper Taramakau Valley. The lower end of the boundary begins at the Taramakau and Otira River confluence near SH73. The upper boundary end is approximately 3km upriver of Kiwi Hut and 4km downriver of Locke Stream Hut. The area extends 2km up Pfeifer Creek and 1km up Otehake River. A map of the area can be found on the Vector Free Marlborough website under the Current Operations tab. Operation date April 1, 2022 to June 30, 2022 (approximate) Poisoning methods, poison used and nature of poison • Feratox encapsulated cyanide in the form of a capsule, dyed green/ blue, presented with feed-paste or similar attractant contained inside reusable bait stations 130cm above the ground. General warning The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs. • Follow advice stated on poison warning signs • Do not touch poison baits, bait stations or traps • Do not touch poisoned possum carcasses • Keep children under strict supervision in the control area • Keep pets under supervision; do not let dogs eat poisoned carcasses Warning signs will be erected at all main public entry points and the public are reminded that it is an offence to remove any of these signs.
