Featured project - Weed control on offshore islands

Project: Control of weeds on various islands in the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland.

Client: Department of Conservation (DoC)

The Department of Conservation contracts Te Ngahere to provide "away" teams of ecological restoration staff to stay in huts or campgrounds and control environmental weeds on offshore islands in the Hauraki Gulf and Kaipara Harbour, including Motutapu, Great Barrier and Moturemu Islands.

Service requirements include:

control of high priority weed species throughout conservation estates
intensive grid searches, weed surveys / maps and inventory lists
working to nominated budgets and timeframes
working in isolated areas, extreme terrain ( e.g requiring Abseiling ) and inclement weather
regular comprehensive reporting
first class health and safety measures

These contracts have been monitored by DOC staff and control outcomes have seen Te Ngahere continue to be invited to carry out further initial and follow-up control work on offshore islands administered by the Dept.
