From: K Lane

Department of Conservation,

Under the Official Information Act 1987 I request the following information which relates to a recent DOC video which starts off with the words "Overall native bird numbers have doubled" and goes on to say that in one West Coast valley birdsong has doubled over the past 20 years" after "two decades of aerial 1080 and trapping":

1. Which valley is this?
2. Is there a report on this work that is available to the public on methodology and results?
3. In which years was this valley aerially 1080d?
4. In which years was a trapping program carried out?

Yours faithfully,

K Lane
