Rat plague crisis about to hit New Zealand says BirdLife Partner Forest & Bird

Sun, 29/11/2015
BirdLife New Zealand partner, Forest & Bird is predicting a pest plague next winter and spring given the significant level of beech flowering occurring now. This will lead to an abundance of seed the next autumn which in turn leads to an eruption of rat and stoat predator populations.
