|Final Print with name aspect visible.|
Background: This design and process has been described indepth before on previous posts on this blog, the difference was an addition was made, as shown in photographs, that the name of the person (in this case from the Taranaki Regional Council, the pest control officer was added to the base of the print) was added. This was for the purpose of identifying the bait station, and obviously this could be modified to introduce the name of a company or organisation or even number the bait stations in sequence for recording purposes. It was also considered that the students could produce something similar for fundraising purposes, with the name of a company, or individual added to the print run.

Size: The lettering likewise did not alter the dimensions of the design significantly, evidence from the night vision camera has identified that the Hedgehogs are unable to dislodge the bait stations from the ground by tipping them over, as once the station is buried in the ground with the
legs featured above enough resistance is created to prevent the toppling of the bait station. We have photographs of hedgehogs attempting to do just this to allow them better access at the bait.
What we would do differently: The students will be moving on to other projects as this one has been mastered, the only exception would be the production of individual bait stations in some form of economic process (such as a student market day) or gifts to the appropriate organisation associated with the school.
