2nd edition (2005) available. To order, please send your payment to the Trust office
The Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust hosted a practical workshop on mustelid control techniques in August 2000. At the request of attendees, a follow-on field guide was published by the Trust in 2002 and revised in 2005. This A5-sized booklet, which outlines the biology of the mustelids (stoats, ferrets and weasels) including reproduction, diet and range, signals the implications of predator guild relationships. Placement of traps (when, where, how many), technical aspects of trapping and types of traps are all discussed. Included are sample data recording sheets, and explanations about the importance of accuracy of records, including recognising nil returns. The legal obligations under the Animal Welfare Act are also included in this booklet.
Aimed at both amateur and experienced trappers, the Trust hopes it may assist in the practical eradication of one of the threats to the rare yellow-eyed penguin and other endemic species.
