    I agree that 15% seems alarming given the fact they went to such measures of shooting the Tahr to sidetrack the kea to prevent such a result.
    For the net benefit to the kea population to be positive you would certainly need a good predator kill.
    15% of the population of an estimated 100-120 kea doesnt seem acceptable to me.
    Work less hunt more!

    Me either; because a small tagged sample is too risky a basis to assume the security of a very endangered population, already known to have been decimated by the same 1080 poison policies.

    I hear DoC are continuing to have a crack with their tahr 1080 poisoning down south. They propose placing a few butchered tahr up high to feed the birds while they dump the green shit down lower.

    Been done. Apparrently they wanted to shoot 300 Tahr but could only find a few dozen. The Kea scoffing those but still 15% of tagged birds died. AFU.

    I was told recently that DOC have “discovered” kiwi down near Gorge River, south of Cascade, in an area that has “Never” been 1080ed, I wonder when they will decide that the high level of bykill of the birds they are trying to protect isn’t working?
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Just the usual from DoC and their tnt mates. Any independent alternative "science" will get the perptrator/s pilloried by DoC and most public media. Been that way for far too long.
