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 backyard is by protecting them from rats and mice.
A trapping tunnel is a box to put a rat trap inside. The tunnel is designed to protect your young family members and pets from the trap.

Predator Free 2050 is an ambitious goal to rid New Zealand of the most damaging introduced predators that threaten our nation’s natural taonga, our economy and primary sector.
