Wallaby populations have been migrating up the Tekapo River and have become a common sight around the Tekapo Resource Recovery Park area.

To help prevent this wallaby population from growing and spreading into the National Park, contractors will be conducting a thermal shoot of this area.

Work will take place after dark so please avoid this area between 11:00pm and 2:00am.
