This is a picture of a poison dispenser attached to a tree. Its purpose is to poison and kill rats or other rodents who approach it. It is a conservation method implemented by a restoration organization that aims to eliminate rats in the area between Days bay and Eastbourne. These traps were established in the area in 2005 and have been successful in keeping rat populations at bay. www.nzes.org.nz/nzje/free_issues/NZJEcol19_1_5.pdf
