Management Notes for this Location:
An attempt at cat eradication was made in 2000, in conjunction with a rodent eradication attempt. At least one cat was found to have been killed by the aerial drop of brodifacoum intended to knock down the rodent population. A cat eradication programme was initiated one week after this, using bait stations stocked with a 1080 bait. One week following this, cat trapping began. A regime of two weeks on, two weeks off continued through 2001 until eradication was achieved. The last two cats were destroyed between July and September 2001.
