Kiwi Sanctuary will gain new traps

We have secured funding from the Lou and Iris Fisher Charitable Trust to begin upgrading our stoat traps to stainless steel DOC 200 traps in our Kiwi Sanctuary.

With 700 traps spread over 7900 hectares, this is a big task! Since our Kiwi Sanctuary’s establishment in 2005 these traps have caught over 787 stoats, 548 weasels, 5844 rats, 101 hedgehogs and 23 cats, making a huge difference to the breeding success of resident Kiwi.
