Monster wasp nest

The Team from Wasp Wipeout

Well, after a (relatively) quiet couple of summers, the vespula wasps have come back big time in some locations! Auckland and the Waikato are reporting big numbers and you may have seen this story about the monster nest found just outside of Nelson. We're continuing our efforts to control the wasps through the Wasp Wipeout project, but did you know you can help as well? For information on how to help or DIY click here: bit.ly... You can also donate to the project here: givealittle.co.nz...

We Say/You Say: Kiwi Sanctuary

Thomas Campbell Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Hi neighbours,

Would you support a predator-free, fenced area in an area near you?

Five kiwi have been found dead in Northland and a dog is believed to be responsible.

The Department of Conservation is urging dog owners to keep control of their pets especially during the daytime where kiwi are at their most vulnerable.

From 1990 to 2018, 345 kiwi were killed by dogs in the North Island, according to DOC. With heightened conservation efforts, the Northland kiwi population is showing positive signs of recovery.

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in The Bay Chronicle.
