The creditable progress that Friends of Flora have made in their 'special' corner of Kahurangi National Park is a legacy from their dedicated team of volunteers that have contributed enthusiasm, skills and time to the betterment of its flora and fauna over many years.
Whilst on-going predator trapping remains uppermost in the list of FOF's priorities, a number of no less significant projects provide an indication of the progress in biodiversity enhancement being achieved. These are more varied during the year, offering a targeted focus on species and location.
Friends of Flora recently introduced a dedicated training trap line, enabling new but inexperienced volunteers to gain confidence in trapping protocols and off-track work, in the varied terrain of the Flora. Following their accreditation they would be expected to work with the trapping teams, become familiar with the Flora environment, and contribute to a number of the above activities to broaden their knowledge and skills.
