|Friends of Flora - Monitoring|
We have been doing bird monitoring from the outset of our programme. This involves our volunteers on our main core line, which is along the Flora Track, to take a one minute bird count - seen or heard, every 200 metres.
In addition, we use Footprint Tracking Tunnels to monitor stoat and rat numbers and thus the effectiveness of our trapping programs.
