Otaua had a running start with recent Bovine TB eradication taking the possums numbers to a very low level. It’s a perfect time for landowners to get active and make use of the existing installations left through out the Otaua bush blocks.

The main hive of activity in Otaua is in the form of the infamous Otaua Rat Rangers, a sub group of the Otaua Schools Nature Warriors.
