Dear Lou and Martin
I note that DoC released Takahe in Kahurangi National Park last year.
Please can you urgently advise what steps have been taken by or on behalf of DoC to assess the risk to Takahe of using 1080 poison baits and/or to to protect Takahe and Tahake food and habitat from 1080 poison during DoC’s 2019 Kahurangi 1080 poison operations.
Please can you also provide copies of any Wildlife Act permits, HSNO Act s95A permits or any other permits or authorities that DoC has issued for its 2019 aerial poisoning operation to kill Takahe, Kea or any other wildlife in Kahurangi National Park.
Please can you also provide copies of any assessment of effects prepared by or on behalf of DoC for its 2019 Kahurangi poison operation.
This information should be readily available, matter has considerable public interest and is likely to be relevant to legal proceedings.
I would be accordingly be grateful if it could please be provided by reply email.
Thank you and kind regards
