Boggy trapping progress June, 2015.

Steve Playle completed two years of trapping at Boggy wetlands at the end of June this year.

He sent the following report:

Interestingly predator numbers have not reduced since the first year off trapping was completed. There is currently 94 trapping sites established around the project area now so trapping hours have increased substantially meaning that more traps have been available for predators to encounter than was the case in the first year.
