Project Kaka Ground Control at Donnelly Flat, Mount Holdsworth.
Project Kaka is a 22,000ha protection zone in the Tararua Forest Park where the Department of Conservation intends to restore the forest and its wildlife through intensive pest control. The 22,000ha area has aerial pest control every three years. The Donnelly Flat 40ha area is at the eastern side of the forest park at the Mount Holdsworth Road End. The volunteer project uses ground control to eradicate pests in a high visitor area and allows the community to participate.
