Mārahau Halo Trapping Project

The Mārahau Halo Trapping Project is a locally led, community based initiative to support ongoing trapping systems in the Abel Tasman National Park by creating several actively monitored trap lines in and around Mārahau.

Starting in March 2020, and with a goal of protecting the native birds (current and future) in the national park (Kākā have been sighted as far south as Stillwell Bay, 6km from Mārahau), we have established five active trap lines with over 130 rat, mouse and stoat traps. Our five trap lines compliment the work being done inside the Abel Tasman National Park and in the Otuwhero Valley and wetlands and by working closely with neighbouring conservation groups we are actively working towards a pest free halo around the southern entrance to the Abel Tasman National Park.
