Joining the Dots
Catchpool Eco Hotspot
Looking up the Catchpool Valley into the Eco-Hotspot from the top of the Catchpool Loop Track. The Orongorongo Track and Catchpool Stream stretch off into the distance. This is an area of incredible native plant diversity and is a haven for a good deal of wildlife.
The eco-hotspot is just one of the projects tackled by the Joining the Dots project team/ sub-committee with supporting grants from DOC.
The entire area has had its trapping network intensified with many
more traps, and a greater variety of traps and monitoring devices.
