• Students enrolled in the Environmental Monitoring and Outdoor Education Courses at EIT undertake monitoring and rodent control in Mohi Bush.
  • Environmental Management Students also monitor the effectiveness of the rodent control using tracking tunnels.
  • The Project aims to reduce rodent numbers to aid the breeding success of key species in the area especially Toutouwai and Titipounamu.
  • The Project provides practical learning experiences for the students which hopefully results in a higher respect for native Flora and Fauna from the students and a better understanding of the importance of monitoring, pest control and conservation efforts.
  • The Project started in 2023 and was well received by students, by embedding this project into the Environmental Monitoring course it will allows for ongoing protection, building a robust data set and develop a connection with Mohi Bush.
