FREE Predator Trapping and Monitoring Workshop - Christchurch - 14 September

It’s Conservation Week and NATURE NEEDS US!

Back by popular demand is this free introduction to predator monitoring and trapping! With the support of the Summit Road Society we will be looking at the how to’s and why’s of predator control. There is something for beginners right through to the more experienced trappers. Learn how to start up your own group or come and join one of the teams already in action – or even just try it out in your backyard!

This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY event and there will be activities and talks for the children to keep them entertained and learning about what to find in their own garden.

  • Learn about monitoring techniques – make sure your trapping the right thing and that you’re making a difference
  • Learn how to use – DOC 200’s, Trapinators, Victor traps and Good Nature A12’s and A24’s.
  • Learn about why we are doing this in the first place. We can all make a difference for our native species if we all do this together!
