Street navigation: The 4 Ninjas team from Levin's Kotuku Sea Scouts plot their course before the start of the annual City Safari, from left, Matthew Nixon, James Orchard, Saul Purcell and scout leader Paul Robinson. They were among 500 Safari navigators undeterred by torrential morning rain and high winds to compete in the event, held in Petone for the first time, said organiser Michael Wood. The City Safari is a wide-ranging orienteering event in which competitors may use public transport to get around the region and answer as many questions as possible at checkpoints. Questions ranged from, ''Name the boat sticking out of the north side of the the Settlers' Museum'' to ''How many bolts hold up the Philip Myers Park sign?''. The rain was gone by lunchtime and the sun shone on the Queen's Wharf finish line. Scout leader Paul Robinson said the 4 Ninjas scored 165 points around Johnsonville, Khandallah and up the cable car in the three-hour event, won by mixed team Tough Like Jelly, from Wilton. -- JIM CHIPP Pest control on track at the halfway point Horizons Regional Council's 10-year possum control programme is exceeding targets as it approaches its halfway mark, the council says. The programme, which began five years ago, covers seven districts and 1.2 million hectares of private land. Council contractors place one bait station containing brodifacoum poison per hectare. Traps have been laid over 65 per cent of the 73,000ha of Horowhen- ua's private farm land included in the programme. Horizons biosecurity manager Bill Martyn said since the programme began numbers had dropped signifi- cantly, with traps catching about two possums per hectare, better than programme targets. Horizons had set a 5 per cent residual catch rate target for every 100 traps set in areas at risk of TB, and a 10 per cent target for other areas for the programme's halfway point, Mr Martyn said. Recent results show a 2.16 per cent catch rate for at-risk areas and a 6.07 per cent rate for other areas, he said. Mr Martyn said the benefits of the programme were beginning to show, with trees showing little evidence of possums and reports from land- owners of birdlife returning. The council employs six contrac- tors to set bait stations up trees, away from non-targeted animals. We've had excellent feedback from the community members involved . . . and this is a fantastic milestone to reach.'' The programme is due to finish in June 2016.
