Event description

Description

Want to learn about predators and trapping? Would you be willing to put a trap in your backyard to protect native wildlife (or maybe let someone check the trap for you)? Perhaps you have a few hours to spare each week to check traps.

This workshop aims to increase trapping to protect the amazing birdlife in the Ashley estuary and wetlands just north of Christchurch... But it's not just about the Ashley! If you live anywhere in New Zealand and are interested in learning about predators and trapping in your area, come along to this FREE workshop, followed by afternoon tea (we'll even have chocolate biscuits!)

Programme

  1. Overview: of predators and trapping and the importance of monitoring trapping results (excellent for novices or those wanting to learn a bit more)

  2. Ashley Estuary: ecological overview, potential re-introduction of kaki-black stilt, and the need for more trapping (local focus, but useful information for anyone living near waterways)

  3. Trap types: demonstration and a discussion with tips and tricks for getting the most our of your trapping (suitable for everyone)

  4. How you can help: for those interested in trapping locally, we will split into groups

  5. Afternoon tea
