There is plenty you can do to help! From reporting mustelid sightings to undertaking your own predator control and joining a community pest control group.
Do predator control on your own land
Checkout our resources and identifying predators pages for more details on predator control. The Predator Free Trust also has great advice on predator control methods for landowners.
Join a community pest control group
There are many local groups already actively controlling rodents on Waiheke, and a few are controlling both mustelids and rodents. These groups are always looking for new volunteers.
Report a mustelid sighting
We’d love to know if you’ve seen a stoat (or a ferret or a weasel)! By recording sightings of these predators, we can start to form a picture of places where they are frequently active. One sighting might not result in a new trap, as stoats have a very large home range, but the combination of sightings will us to determine the layout and intensity of stoat traps as we progress. Thank you for taking the time to report your sighting.
