Sponsor a trap and help save the Kiwi
For ten years now a committed band of volunteers have been working to make the Rimutaka Forest Park safe to release kiwi.
To achieve this we have been trapping stoats around a large area between the East Whakanui and McKerrow tracks. Currently we have over 900 trap stations (Warning! Large File!) operational and plan to expand the network considerably.
By sponsoring a trap you will help with the:
- maintenance of traps
- supply of baits
- training and equipment for volunteer trappers
- monitoring and caring for the released kiwi
By subscribing you will also receive a certificate showing the trap station and its location. We will keep you informed of the kill rate and update you on our new residents.
The sponsorship fee is NZ$25 per year, per trap. Please make cheques payable to
"The Rimutaka Forest Park Charitable Trust" . Alternatively, you
can also pay by Direct Deposit (EFT) via Internet Banking to our
Bank account #: 020544 0002549 00 .
