CLARENCE GCO 2022 POSSUM CONTROL
Possums are a vector of bovine tuberculosis (TB) spreading the disease through direct contact with stock. To eliminate the risk of bovine TB spreading in domestic stock, TBfree NZ has implemented a possum control operation in an area on the true left of the Clarence River.
Where is it happening?
The operation covers an area of 17,851 hectares along the true left of the Clarence River between Tinkers Saddle and the Nidd Stream confluence. Work will commence around Red Hill and continue north-east towards the Chalk Range.
When will this happen?
Possum control is planned from 24 January 2022 through to 23 September 2022. Excell personnel will keep in close contact with landholders regarding exact timeframes and methods on individual properties.
