Wallaby Control

Joining the Rangitoto Island Wallaby Eradication team in the early 1990’s was my first introduction to working with wallabies.  I remained with this team for 8 years and saw the operation through to the complete eradication of Brush Tailed Rock wallabies from 3800 hectares of Rangitoto and Motutapu Islands.  During those years I undertook dozens of control operations for Parma, Dama, Brush Tailed Rock, and Swamp wallabies from Kawau Island and developed trapping and shooting techniques for all four species.  This work resulted in my hands-on involvement in live-capture operations targeting Brush Tailed Rock and Dama Wallabies for repatriation to Australia in 2003-2004 and a subsequent Live capture operation targeting Parma and Dama Wallabies for Wellington Zoo in 2005.  Very few people in NZ have this level of wallaby control experience and we have maintained relationships with those that do, ensuring our clients access to professional wallaby control regardless of location.
