EPRO Poisoning

Epro Taupo Ltd have a contract to contol possum numbers and a consent to poison around the Tongariro River. This map shows the area in red where this will occur.


The map below shows the area where 1080 baits will be dropped by helicopter.

Please note that there have been a couple of areas that have been removed from aerial application but are not shown on this map, the first area is  between the Yacht Club (Frethy Rd) and the Waiotaka River. The second area is the true left of the Tongariro river off the end of Awamate Rd These two areas will now have ground control techniques applied.

This is the instruction page received for aerial baiting.

Signs exist to explain what is happening.
