WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
The Wairaurahiri Jet Predator Trapping programme was setup in 2006 by Johan and Joyce to help arrest the continuous decline of our native birds. The once “millions and millions” of birds have been decimated, mostly as a result of the on-going predation by non-native rats and stoats.
We need your help to monitor this area’s bird life. You can also sponsor a trap which will help us maintain and grow the current schemes. You will see our humane traps beside the track, please leave them to do their job.
SO WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Record the birds you see while on the Wairaurahiri River, Hump Ridge or South Coast Tracks. Use the tear-off portion in the provided booklet to record your sightings and get the results back to us at Wairuarahiri Jet or via the Hump Ridge Track office.
You can also record your sightings on this page if you fully load the page before going out of mobile coverage you will still be able to interact with the numbers for each bird. Once you reach connectivity again you can submit your results by filling in your details at the bottom of the screen.
