Penguin predation study
Pauline Williamson, 2001, Lincoln University
Pauline, from Lincoln University, is doing her Masters project on the white-flippered penguin. She is evaluating the existing predator control at Flea Bay and Stony Bay (on Banks Peninsula) which is in place for the benefit of the white-flippered penguins living in the area. Her overall objective is to provide the two landowners with recommendations, which are easily implemented, to increase predator catches and, in turn, increase penguin survivorship.
The Trust believes the results of her work on predation could benefit their predation control work in yellow-eyed penguin habitats.
