Waitākere Ranges rat numbers double, destroying kōkako chicks

Melanie Earley Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours, kōkako nests in the Waitākere Ranges have been hit hard by rats after rodent populations in the area nearly doubled, meaning all of the kōkako chicks and eggs in three nests inside Forest & Bird's Ark in the Park have been destroyed by predators. Waitākere Forest & Bird branch chairperson Annalily van den Broeke said those living in the area could help save the birds by putting out traps on their property.

Would you be willing to set traps to help give these birds a fighting chance?
