Climing Trees and Rimu Fruit

In March we had teams head out to both Anchor and Whenua Hou to climb trees. While this may sound more like an activity suited to kids, its actually a really important part of our management. We carefully monitor the levels of fruit growing on rimu trees on both islands as masting (mass fruiting) of rimu is a known trigger for kākāpō to breed.
