We’ve been working alongside other predator free neighbourhoods to help eradicate mammalian predators and make Wellington a safe place for native birds, insects, and reptiles. If you would like to get involved in this great vision the best thing you can do is to put a trap in your backyard and become a part of the movement.
Get in touch if you are living in Lyall Bay, Melrose, Kilbirnie or Rongotai and would like a trap for your backyard. Traps are standard rat traps which come in a wooden tunnel to make them safe. For a small koha we’ll drop one to you and show you how to use it. We are a fully volunteer organisation, and any funds raised are used to buy more traps to give out around the neighbourhood.
Once you’ve got a trap set up you’ll need to make sure you keep checking it regularly and maintaining it so that it continues to be effective.
And if you’d like to help out in any other way such as helping to organise or fundraise to buy traps, or building trap boxes then get in touch!
