Abstract

Totals of 67 Middle Island tusked weta Motuweta isolata were released on Red Mercury Island and 80 on Double Island between 2000 and 2003. In 2005 surveys located 11 wetas on Red Mercury and 4 on Double Island. Juvenile wetas were found on both islands in 2004 and 2005 showing that successful breeding had occurred.
