Predator Free Selwyn

We are embarking on a set of projects to help make Selwyn Predator Free, starting with Lincoln.

We aim to start tackling the problem in the following ways:

  • We have started a free Trap Library of traps. Full instructions and Health and Safety advice will be provided.
  • We aim to determine the pest problem and monitor trends with tracking tunnels. Then set correctly designated traps in the Mahoe Reserve and Lincoln Wetlands.
  • We aim to promote Predator Free NZ and get everyone involved in trapping at home. With the intended outcome that Lincoln becomes predator free and that the project can be expanded to other Selwyn Communities.

Selwyn Trap Library

For opening times see Events


The Selwyn Trap Library opened for the first time in October 2019 at the Lincoln Farmers & Craft Market.

You can come and see us for trapping advice and free trap hire.

The trap library is open on the last Saturday of every month at the Lincoln Farmers & Craft Market, 10am-1pm.

For details, including opening dates,  see Events.

Trapping at Reserves

We have a team of volunteers monitoring and trapping in several reserves in Lincoln. We are working with Selwyn District Council on this project.
