Shakespear Open Sanctuary
Weedbuster Type: Group
Contact Person: Alison Wesley
Now that we’ve removed all the pest animals from the Shakespear Open Sanctuary the pest plants are recovering just as quickly as the natives, so SOSSI does indeed have a weedbusting team working in the sanctuary.
We have also been running a series of advertisements in the local paper to encourage residents to do their bit along the Whangaparaoa peninsula. We have a target weed each month and post more details on our website www.sossi.org.nz with a link to your weedbuster site.
Our hit list for the ads has been as follows : moth plant, boneseed, woolly nightshade, pampas, climbing asparagus, ginger, rhamnus, phoenix, banana passionfruit, monkey-apple, loquat.
