Night shooting, for pest control of wallabies will take place at Tekapo Forestry Block, over the period of 17 April until 20 April 2023.
Wallaby populations have been migrating up the Tekapo River and have become a common sight around Cowans Hill and the surrounding forestry block.
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 5.00 pm and 8.30 am.
Contractors will be operating Monday to Thursday.
This work is part of the National Wallaby Eradication Programme, and will occur in the area marked on the below map.
Warning signs will be posted at entry points to Cowans Hill and the forest area in Tekapo.
