The children from Hedgehope School have been learning about the environment so their teacher Lisa McCraken, thought it would be a great idea to bring them to Motupohue to meet with the BHMET. The children were very interested in the bird life that live on the hill and the trapping system that helps keep them safe. Trust Chairperson, Estelle Leask, spoke to them about the work the trust does and showed them the trap system and how the traps operate, they were facinated to learn how many rats one pair of breeding rats produce.
