Projects include Predator Free Punakaiki, Predator Free Truman Track and Host a Trap:Barrytown Flats. We operate under the Incorporated Society, Coast Road Dawn Chours Inc. Membership is a $5 one-off payment. We welcome new members. Please contact David Moore if you would like to join.
Host a Trap on the Barrytown Flats
This is a community rat/stoat trapline along the Coast Road of the Barrytown Flats (from 17 Mile Bluff to Razorback Point).
If you live on this section of the Coast Road and would like to host a trap, we have traps available now for allocation. There is no charge for the traps, but they do remain the property of Coast Road Dawn Chorus Inc.
The trap needs to go somewhere along your road frontage e.g. at/ near your letterbox or gate. As the trap host you will be responsible for checking, rebaiting and clearing (preferably twice a month), and reporting on monthly catches. No one will enter your property to check the trap unless you specifically ask them to do so.
Training on safe use of the trap will be given when it's delivered.
Please Host a Trap and help our native birds.
This project is funded by the DOC Community Fund.
