  7. Hedgehog control in the Mackenzie Basin

Nick Foster talks about his research on the movement and habitat use of hedgehogs in upland areas and how tracking hedgehogs with GPS devices has informed the 2500 ha eradication trial that is currently underway in the Te Manahuna Project area.

Nick is from the Department of Zoology at the University of Otago and has been attaching small transmitting “backpacks” onto hedgehogs in alpine areas of the Mackenzie Basin.
