We aim to start tackling the problem in the following ways:
- We are starting a Trap Library of traps. Full instruction and Health and Safety advice will be provided.
- We aim to promote Predator Free NZ and everyone to get involved in trapping at home using the library and in the wider community. With the intended outcome that Lincoln becomes predator free and that the project can be expanded to other Selwyn Communities.
- We aim to determine the pest problem and monitor trends with tracking tunnels and then set correctly designated traps in the Mahoe Reserve and Lincoln Wetlands.
The Selwyn Trap Library will open for the first time on the 26th October 2019, 10am – 1pm at the Lincoln Farmers & Craft Market.
Come see us for trapping advice, trap hire or to figure out what we are about. There will be a limited number of DOC200 traps and bait to loan out.
The trap library will be open on the last Saturday of every month at the Lincoln Farmers & Craft Market.
