Achieving the goal of a predator free New Zealand by 2050 will require a massive team effort.
You can make a difference by setting traps in your garden and catching pests like mice, rats, possums and stoats.
One of the best ways you can look after the native birds and lizards in your back yard is by protecting them from rats and mice.
By trapping at home you will be keeping the native animals in your area safe from these threats.
Setting traps in your garden will help native birds, lizards, and invertebrates.
