Paws4Conservation: : Gadget is a Jack Russell x fox terrier and one of 80 Conservation Dogs in New Zealand. Gadget is trained to detect rats and mice, and her role is to help keep predator-free places like Ulva Island as predator-free. She does this by patrolling the Island to sniff out unwelcome arrivals, or checking for stowaways on boats and in bags before they leave the mainland. To learn more about Conservation Dogs like Gadget visit the Conservation Dogs Programme webpage https://www.doc.govt.nz/our-work/conservation-dog-programme/
We can take a maximum of 63 people subject to availability.
All Bedding is Supplied By Stewart Island Backpackers. No SLEEPING BAGS ALLOWED ON BEDS, as bed bugs spread through dirty sleeping bags.
We allow two single rooms at the reduced rate of $32 per night for the two teachers accompanying your party; all other adults are allocated dorm rooms. Additional single rooms may be booked at the normal rate of $58 per night.
