Predator Control

Introduced pests, such as rats, stoats, possums and wasps, have had a major impact on the local native bird and insect populations as well as their habitat. Our current predator control programme extends right along the Abel Tasman National Park coast from Marahau to Awaroa.

We currently maintain 865 traps year-round using the following designs:

  • Wooden stoat boxes housing DOC150 traps targeting stoats
  • Goodnature A24 traps targeting rats
  • Sentinel and Trapinator traps targeting possums
  • Vespex bait targeting wasps

 Trapping is intergral to predator control projects.
