FOUR POSSUMS IN ONE DAY🎶John McGlashan College students got off to an epic start with the trapline they are taking over at Tolcarne Ave in the Town Belt. Senior students trained up on the trapline this week under the expertise of City Sanctuary staff and with support from their kaiako and Town Belt Kaitiaki. Expectations will need to come down😁. This is a newly activated line so the trained akonga can't expect to trap four possums each week! But what we can hope to see more of is the birdlife.

We are bringing the birds back! ... See MoreSee Less
