The request was successful.

From: Ray Thompson

Dear Department of Conservation,

Please provide me with relevant information regarding the Makaroa,and Matukituki 1080 aerial operations that have not proceeded.
Wanaka DoC spokesperson Annette Grieve stated that these operations were abandoned due to rodent numbers being lower with less risk to the bird population.
#1. How were the rodent population numbers ascertained?
#2. What is the total financial cost of this abandoned operation to date?
#3. How were the unused cereal baits disposed of?
#4. Were 1080 cereal baits transported from Makarora to Marton and dumped in a toxic waste-pit?

Yours faithfully,

Ray Thompson
