Mataruahou (Napier Hill) residents can now look forward to more birds and bugs in their backyards with the establishment of Predator Free Napier Hill (PFNH). PFNH project manager Heidi Stiefel, who has been trapping pests in her neighbourhood for a few years, is hoping for fewer pests and more birdlife on the hill. "Our aim is to eradicate introduced pests through a backyard trapping project."
The group has a five-year goal to have one trap to every five households across Mataruahou (Napier Hill) and offers a service to maintain and clear the traps, so let Heidi know if you are keen to volunteer.
For more information about Predator Free Napier Hill, contact Heidi via email or social media, or check out their resources and info page below. For more general trapping, baiting and monitoring resources check out the Predator Control page on our website.
