Are you interested in doing more to support native wildlife in your backyard, as part of Predator-Free 2050? Join the free Trappin Workshop run by DoC to help make the Mackenzie Region predator free.

This free trapping workshop is calling on Te Manahuna/ Mackenzie basin residents to join in and learn about the different ways you can be involved in protecting our native biodiversity. 

Please come along to equip yourself with knowledge and connections to help you get started.

Learn more about trapping mammalian predators, different types of lures available and the benefits of trapping in an urban environment.

There will be displays and information on several traps and demonstrations on how to safely use them.

We’re seeking volunteers who are keen to help Predator-free NZ efforts by supporting trapping groups and engaging their communities in protecting biodiversity.

There are lots of ways you can help, such as:

  • Start/join a trapping group.
  • Collect or input data on trap catches in your area.
  • Administer a local Facebook page or group on another platform to stay connected.
  • Be a go-to person for inquiries or requests.
  • Inspire others to take action.

You may be interested in doing all these things, or they can be split between two or more people as we know many of you have busy lives! We’ll talk about how to get this going and listen to what sparks your interest.

 You don’t need to be an ecologist, hardcore trapper, or Facebook fanatic to attend this workshop, you just need to want to make a difference with whatever time you can give.

Join us on 14th July at 7 pm at the Twizel Event Centre. Please RSVP to [email protected]
