We have chosen the six winter (6) months to run this competition as this is when you are most likely to catch rodents and other predators in your backyard. You have to Bait, Set and Check your traps regularly to catch these pests and contribute to a truly brilliant and improving Picton Dawn Chorus.
Over 200 traps have been bought by households in this area. If they are all baited, set and checked each week, our eradication rates will improve.
If you do not yet have a trap you can buy one for $10 at the EnviroHub and then Bait, Set and Check your trap to be in to win.

This month's prize - visit Motuara Island

This month's prize is a trip for two to Motuara Island thanks to the wonderful support of Cougar Line. Motuara Island will give you a glimpse of what the bird life should be like in the Marlborough Sounds. Rats were eradicated from the island in 1992 and since then the birds have flourished and rare species such as Tieke (saddleback) and Kakariki have been reintroduced. The Island is also used as a creche for the rarest kiwi, the Rowi. Check out the Cougar Line website here.
