Notice of wallaby control work: Tekapo Resource Recovery Park

Night shooting, for pest control of wallabies will take place at Tekapo Resource Recovery Park, over the period of 13 May until 16 May 2024.

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.

Warning signs will be put in place at all normal points of entry. Please avoid this area during this time.

This work is part of the Tipu Mātoro National Wallaby Eradication Programme.
