In a very old podocarp forest behind Dannevirke, North of Wellington, are a group of keen trappers ready to learn everything they can about trapping to protect their local ngahere (bush).
High on the rugged hillsides of the Paekākāriki Escarpment track on the Kāpiti Coast, Paul Callister and his team of committed volunteers from Ngā Uruora community conservation group, have been spraying weeds, trapping pests and planting native plants for nearly 20 years. It’s not easy or paid work so we were lucky that Paul had time to tell us his story - about what keeps him going and what attracted him to the project in the first place.
Throughout the year, we at Goodnature do our bit to monitor the success of our traps in a bunch of places around New Zealand. One of those places is Great Island, part of Fiordland National Park in the southwest corner of the South Island.
