Celebrating 15 years of community trapping


This weekend Goodnature turns 15. For over a decade we have been able to make a difference in conservation and contribute to the biodiversity and resilience of our native flora and fauna. As we near 2021, our mission hasn’t changed: we want to see a pest free New Zealand. Thanks to each and every one of you who have installed a trap, what we have achieved is astonishing. 

Goodnature started with two friends - who met while studying product design at university. Craig and Robbie set out to shake up the traditional way of trapping to really make a dent in the booming pest populations, and give New Zealand’s native species a fighting chance against invasive predators. The Goodnature team set out to solve the problem of labour intensive trapping methods by designing the world’s first self-resetting trap: the A24.

15 years on, the automatic, self-resetting, toxin-free trap is a tool widely used by community groups and backyard trappers alike to get on top of their pest problem. With pest free environments, the dream to see once endangered species in our backyards can be a reality. 

As we turn 15, we want to say thank you and give back to some of the people that have been on this journey with us. So we’ve gifted 15 A24 traps with Chirp to 15 community groups across the county who’re doing amazing work for the environments they care about. Love your work! 

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing the stories of these amazing people and the incredible work they're doing. We are so proud to be a part of this adventure... and it’s just the beginning!
