The Kepler Challenge birdsong project
In 2006 the Kepler Challenge Organising Committee entered into a partnership with DOC to establish and maintain stoat traps around the length of the Kepler Track. Whio/Blue Ducks, Kiwi and many other birds inhabit the area and their survival is greatly increased through these trapping efforts as has been shown in many similar programs throughout New Zealand.
Using a proportion of runner entry fees the Kepler Challenge Organising Committee will maintain the stoat traps it has established around the length of the Kepler track.
