We had a drone at Rotokare today. You’ll see some of the footage taken with it in today’s videos. Image: LEARNZ.
I wonder how drones are being used for mapping? Image: LEARNZ.

Trail cameras are useful technology to help build data for predator control. How might they be helpful for this? Image: LEARNZ.
Developments in technology means that data can be automatically sent from the field to the office when predator traps are set off. Why is this so helpful? Image: LEARNZ.
Predator traps are only one method used for getting rid of pests. What other methods are there? Image: LEARNZ.
This map shows where different types of predator eradication tools are located within Egmont National Park. What other information might you put on a map like this? Image: LEARNZ.
