The Coromandel Outdoor Language Centre (COLC) is based in Whitianga, on the gorgeous Coromandel Peninsula. Over the past two years staff and students have removed over 150 pests from an area they call the "Trapline".

Before the centre's involvement, the area was infested with introduced predators. The Trapline, located on the Waitaia Track, is a return walk of approximately 3 km. It leads through some of the most beautiful native bush on the Coromandel Peninsula.

This is just one of several successful environmental projects that the centre runs alongside its English as a Foreign Language Courses.
