Whio or Blue Duck monitoring

T. Benseman made this Official Information request to Department of Conservation

The request was partially successful.

From: T. Benseman

Dear Department of Conservation,

I'd like to know about monitored and unmonitored numbers of whio in the Taranaki area and also what number of birds have been introduced to or translocated from this area. How many GoodNature and other traps have been introduced there and are being run to an effective schedule.
