Manawahe Eco Trust (MET) is dedicated to managing and enhancing the native biodiversity of the Manawahe Ecological Corridor. Within this area are populations of threatened species including, kārearea, king fern and species of kōkako. MET run a wide range of predator control programmes and trials, the most recent targeting wallabies which are causing a devastating impact on the native forest. The trust received a grant of $2,000 to fund ten bait pumps as they continue to determine the most effective method of wallaby control.
