The information is sourced from expert reports specifically for Dunedin and staff will be handing these out with trees.

City Sanctuary - Trapping Workshops

Trapping Workshop 1: 12.30 pm–2 pm
Trapping Workshop 2: 3 pm–5 pm

Come along to our drop-in predator trapping workshops in the DCC Pop-Up Container in the Upper Botanic Garden.

Learn how to detect pests and use best practice humane kill traps. As a delivery partner for Predator Free Dunedin, our aim is to enhance Dunedin City by removing introduced mammalian predators so our native biodiversity can flourish once again.

Our methods and techniques focus on the health and safety aspects of predator control whilst being humane and effective.

These workshops are designed for adults.
