ZIP 1080 Perth Valley

have just been told today from very reliable source that DOC have given the go ahead for the 1080 drop, even though eight out of eleven Kea that were monitored were confirmed to have been eating the trial pre feed. also that the non toxic repellent bait that is going to be used has not been fully studied or sufficiently trialed. How do you stop this obsession with the usage of poisons in NZ ?

Kea are one of the most intelligent bird species around, they’re inquisitive and work by tasting everything - watch them if you ever get the chance, feet first then into the mouth.... guess what they’ll do with 1080, you don’t need to be a scientist to know where some 1080 will go and what the end result will be for the birds

Yep, the toxic application was approved by DOC last Sunday and is awaiting an appropriate weather window. There are two mitigation measures to protect kea: (1) 30 tahr carcasses to provide an alternative kea food source, and (2) the non-toxic kea repellent bait that makes kea crook (if they eat it) distributed near the tahr carcasses. The pretest showed that (2) was ineffective. Keep your fingers crossed that the kea come out of this OK.

from what I have heard and read on the Zip website they will be [quote] applying non-toxic repellent bait to induce an aversion to cereal baits, prior to applying the toxic bait.

why are people obsessed with dying keas from 1080
dont you know they have a plan,,kill all then reintroduce from non affected areas,,then they become heroes
its just that simple
and every one loves heroes Wink Wink

i dont think there will be anything left in there after 3 yrs

I wonder how feasible live capture of Kea would be, housing them for the drop period, then re-releasing? They seem pretty happy chilling in the relatively small enclosure at Auckland Zoo.

Bait'em up with a strategic drop of windscreen wipers laced with chloroform.

That would’ve been the best thing that ever happened to the rest of Auckland.
