Management Notes for this Location:
An attempt was made to eradicate Rattus exulans from Teanaone and Tepapuri in the Gambier archipelago in 2003. The eradication attempt was undertaken by Pacific Expeditions Ltd (led by Graham Wragg), and involved hand broadcast of brodifacoum (20 ppm) at 3 kg/ha. Non-target impacts included the death of some pigs. Eradication of Rattus exulans is yet to be confirmed (G. Wragg, pers. comm.).
The vegetation of Teanaone and Tepapuri (30 ha) is primarily forested and grassy.
