Every Property Makes a Difference
Before humans arrived in New Zealand there were no ground-dwelling mammals – it was the land of birds. But that changed when people arrived with rats, cats, dogs, stoats, possums etc. Our native forests and wildlife have no defences against these recent arrivals so it is essential to control introduced predators to protect native ecosystems. Pest control keeps forests and wetlands as functioning habitats and enables native birds, insects and lizards to breed and thrive.
Russell Kiwi Protection maintains its own network of traps and we encourage and support landowners to do their own trapping. We can provide you with the advice you need to get started and make a difference or we can organise a program for you.
