New Zealand
Ecosystem: 
Our 2004 objective was to "have all of the bush on Mt Tiger in a healthy state". To that end we have removed over 8000 possums, 700 goats, hundreds of rats and some stoats, ferrets and feral cats.
We are a low key group of individual land owners and our properties have significant bush areas which include a wide variety of fungi, unique Northland snails and many species of visiting and resident native birds.
