The Ruamahanga Restoration Trust is pleased to announce a special partnership with Pūkaha National Wildlife Centre and Enviroschools Wairarapa to distribute predator kits as part of an educational initiative to help school students understand the need and benefit of wildlife monitoring and predator trapping.
Students engaged in water analysis activities gain such a rich learning experience, using Water Analysis Kits to help understand more about the health of the waterways behind their school.
Ruamahanga Restoration Trust supports primary schools across the Wairarapa with native plants for restoration plantings.
Students got stuck into a two-day restoration programme in the lowland forest wetland area around Rathkeale College this week — all made possible thanks to support from the Ruamahanga Restoration Trust, along with funding assistance from Eastern & Central Community Trust.
Secondary students install trail cameras as part of a site monitoring project in an area of regenerating bush bordering the Ruamahanga River.
Year 11 students along with pest and predator consultant John Bissell placed chew cards and trail cameras along the Rathkeale Eco Trail as part of a site monitoring project.
