Please find attached an update from the Auckland City Council on the Hunua Pest Control Programme winter 2015. 
A recap of the programme
In late winter this year (July/August), 1080 will be aerially applied to around 17,000 hectares of parkland in the Hunua Ranges area, including Waharau and Whakatiwai regional parks. This programme is in response to increasing threats to the forest and its native species, including the threatened kōkako, from pests, in particular possums, rats and stoats.
