Walking in nature, one could easily be tricked into thinking the Kanuka plant, with its pretty bunches of white flowers that is frequented by bees, is indigenous. In reality, the Kanuka (Kunzea ericoides) is an invasive species (category 1a according to the National Environmental Management: Biodiversity Act 10 of 2004) and it must be eradicated where possible. In March, a team of 20 people started clearing the area along the Camphersdrift River of Kanuka plants, at the same time collecting data about the site for study purposes.
