Lucky old Waiuku has multiple projects going on.
The Mudlarks are busy helping shore birds all along the edges of the estuaries, but re-invasion from nearby residential properties means that rats, possums and mustelids just keep coming. If you live near the water, or have a boat house, give them a hand. Put out a bait station and some traps, join the trap.nz project and map your gear and catches.
Meanwhile, Sustainable Waiuku is on a mission to champion sustainable lifestyles, organisations and enterprises, so predator trapping falls squarely on their radar.
