A group of locals is aiming to eradicate pests from the entire Picton region.
Kaipupu Point is a small peninsula that juts into Picton Harbour and is protected where it joins the mainland with a predator-proof fence. All was going well until it was found that rats were swimming to the wildlife sanctuary.
Picton Dawn Chorus has spent many years establishing a predator free zone in the town and now they've decided to try and eradicate pests from the entire area.
The group's chairman, James Wilson, explains how it will be done.
