Wild Aro is a community based effort to help restore native birds in our valley and support through trapping of rats and other predators. Considerable success has been achieved in reducing the predator threat in our neighbouring Polhill reserve and increasingly in suburbs such as Brooklyn, Highbury and Kelburn through backyard trapping.
The trapping of rats in Aro Valley will help provide an additional area for rare native birds to expand into from current sanctuaries and also stop the reinvasion of neighbouring areas where they have been removed. Wild Aro is open to any level of participation. Whether it be putting your place forward to have a trap the backyard, helping others in your street with setting the traps, or supporting the running of the effort across the valley, all help will be welcomed.
