Volunteer Saturday

April 1, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm NZDT

Autumn Feracol Operation – Phase 1  This is the start of our coordinated cholecalciferol toxin operation for rat and possum control, which takes place over 3 Saturdays, spread out over the next 6 weeks. Today you’ll head out into the forest to place a tasty, non-toxic lure (Ferafeed) in a line of bait stations.

This is a major campaign, our aim is to bring the summer proliferation of rodents back down. Feracol is one of our more effective tools but it’s a big job and your help is greatly appreciated.

You’ll be provided with a map and instructions. New volunteers will be paired with an experienced person. Clothing and footwear should be suitable for walking off track, plus bring a backpack with any meds that you require and a full bottle of water. Wear gloves if you prefer. There will be a refreshing cuppa and delish baking to replenish your energy levels when you’re done!

We also need good weather so keep your fingers crossed – check back here and on our Facebook page for updates.
