Be an environmental champion - help us on this exciting project to save Auckland‘s native wildlife!

Conservation Volunteers New Zealand, in partnership with Auckland Council are running a predator control training day on Saturday 23rd February 2019.

Animal pests compete with native birds for food and raid their nests for chicks and eggs. They also feed on a wide range of native plants, lizards and invertebrates. Volunteers are helping to eradicate rats, mice and possums in many parks around Auckland. We welcome your help to create a safer place for our native wildlife.

Once trained, you’ll be assigned to a local predator control network in one of the Auckland parks where you will bait and reset traps and record your catches. The trapping takes anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on number of traps, terrain etc. Most volunteers walk their line of traps or bait stations fortnightly or monthly. You can choose when you walk your own track, so you can do it at a time that suits you. You should be able to commit to a minimum of 12 months, be comfortable working alone in forested areas and handling rodent and possum carcasses. You should also live or work locally to the pest control area.
