  • The West Coast Wilderness Trail has now been open since 23 November 2013 and completes an other access option to a island sanctuary. I have been busy trapping my side of the sanctuary have watch 11 Whio (blue duck) ducklings been raised to fledging this last season.

  • I have recently linked this proposal to a submission on the Grey District Draft Economic Development Strategy. This proposal could be developed in stages, the first, to the West, involving the Pest proof fence line as shown under the Transpower powerline and enclosed by fencing up Melfroys Mill tram to my access road and then back to the powerline. Two sides are already clear of vegetation and Malfroys Tram only needs to be cleared as the foundation is still there.
