    East Kaweka 1080 info

    The Napier NZDA Branch and particular our president has been to see our local MP and Ospri re this up coming programme, we've just received this info.

    if someone wants to upload the map on here I can send the full pdf to them. pm me your e-mail
    .



    AERIAL TB CONTROL
    OPERATION
    KAWEKA EAST 2016
    tbfree.co.nz
    TBfree is an OSPRI programme 0800 482 463
    The operation will begin with the
    distribution of non-toxic, tan-coloured
    cereal pellets by helicopter. This ‘prefeed’
    gives possums a taste for the
    pellets and overcomes bait shyness.
    One to two weeks later (weather
    permitting), toxic green cereal pellets
    coated with deer repellent
    – each
    containing 0.15% biodegradable
    sodium fluoroacetate (also known as
    1080) – will be applied by helicopter
    at a rate of two kilograms per hectare.
    That’s about one bait to every
    60 square metres.
    The Kaweka East operation will be
    subject to strict safety, qualityassurance
    and monitoring requirements.
    Advanced GPS navigational
    equipment will be used to ensure
    the pellets are accurately placed and
    identified exclusion zones are avoided.
    THE METHOD
    The vast majority of possum control
    in the region is done by local
    contractors using ground-based traps
    and hand-laid toxins. The remaining,
    far smaller area, is controlled using
    aerially applied pellets containing
    biodegradable 1080.
    Aerial control is highly-e.cient,
    cost-e.ective and has been extremely
    successful at knocking possum
    numbers down to the very low levels
    needed to eradicate TB from wildlife
    and declare areas free of TB. It is
    preferred in areas like Kaweka East
    due to the rugged nature of the
    terrain.
    The Parliamentary Commissioner
    for the Environment supports aerial
    control. The Commissioner completed
    an extensive review into the use of
    1080, in which she strongly endorsed
    its continued use in New Zealand.
    Please visit pce.parliament.nz
    to read this report.
    WHAT
    HAPPENS
    NOW
    The Kaweka East operation is scheduled
    to begin in May/June 2016.
    A contractor
    will be doing the work on behalf of
    OSPRI’s TBfree programme.
    Before the operation, all landowners
    and occupiers within and adjacent
    to the proposed control area will
    be contacted and visited by our
    contractors. They will discuss
    boundary issues, water supply safety
    and the management of any risks
    to dogs and livestock. Consents from
    Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, the
    Department of Conservation and
    Ministry of Health are required for
    this operation. A.ected landowners
    and occupiers will be contacted again
    before the operation starts, notices will
    be published in local newspapers and
    warning signs will be placed at all likely
    access points to the operational area.
    BIODIVERSITY
    BENEFITS
    The operation will have additional
    conservation benefits for native
    birds and bush. Possums eat the
    forest canopy and prey on native
    birdlife, including eggs and chicks.
    Biodegradable 1080 is also extremely
    e.ective at controlling other
    introduced predators which destroy
    our native species, such as ship rats
    and stoats.
    Baits covered in deer repellent. The non-toxic
    pre-feed pellets are brownish-tan while the
    toxic baits are green.

    WHAT TO
    DO IF YOU
    SUSPECT
    POISONING
    Contact your local hospital
    or doctor, or dial 111
    National Poisons Centre
    0800 POISON (764 766)
    If a domestic animal is
    poisoned, contact a local
    veterinarian.
    Warning signs will be placed
    at all main access points to the
    operational area and everyone
    must follow the cautions on
    the signs. There’s no health risk
    when using this area as long
    as you follow these instructions:
    Do not handle any bait or allow
    children to wander unsupervised.
    Cereal baits containing 1080 are
    dyed green.
    Do not hunt or take game from
    within a two kilometre radius
    of the operational area for human
    or pet consumption. It’s an o.ence
    to sell meat products that have
    been exposed to 1080. Hunting can
    resume approximately four months
    following the control work.
    Please observe these rules
    whenever you see warning signs
    about the pesticide. Warning signs
    indicate that pesticide residues may
    still be present in baits or animals.
    When the signs are o.cially
    removed, you can resume normal
    activities in the area. Free dog
    muzzles will be provided on request.
    Please contact Debbie Viner on
    06 353 2712 to obtain a muzzle.
    THERE IS NO
    RISK TO PUBLIC
    DRINKING WATER
    Biodegradable 1080 is highly soluble
    and does not persist in water or
    soil. Local health authorities apply
    strict conditions to aerial operations
    so that drinking water supplies
    are not contaminated. Safety has
    been confirmed by tests on several
    thousand water samples taken
    after aerial 1080 operations over
    many years.
    Do not bring dogs into the area until the
    warning signs have been o.cially removed.
    Dogs are particularly susceptible to 1080.
    They must not be allowed access to bait
    or poisoned carcasses which remain toxic
    to dogs until they have fully decomposed.
    Went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

    Barely even a farm then.
    Deer repelant should do its job(as long as there is no hidden agendas and it is actually used) and being a small area will repopulate from the surrounding country quickly if there is a significant deer casualty.

    As long as they dont actively target them(the deer) which the timing is apt to do.

    We(The mainland) got 700,000 hectares of Arial control recently a lot of it actually targeting deer, so you boys should be ok.

    We fellas on Maui's fish got a few million more people so this area probably sees more hunters per hectare than yous in the waka, but don't worry mate, we'll be fine.

    It can't be targeting TB infested possums either ............. mostly because the stats suggest there is none.

    Your not wrong @veitnamcam

    There are lots of those to be had that's for sure.

    Probably some contractual obligations and tonnage quotas to fill too.
