Welcome to the Whanganui Predator Project – a community of people committed to reducing the number of predators in our city and increasing bird habitat

You can become part of this community by
  • setting up a trap in your backyard
  • contributing your trapping data
  • becoming a volunteer to check our existing Traplines

If you do not have traps, but are interested in getting some, please visit the The Trap Library

Opening Hours at 23 Drews Avenue, Whanganui (new SW hub)
Wednesdays 10am – 5.30pm
Every 2nd Saturday of the month: 9am – 2pm
Please send a message or email to arrange a time outside these hours.
It costs only $2 to borrow a trap!
All our traps are humane.
Target species are:
  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Hedgehogs
  • Stoats/Weasels
  • Ferrets
  • Feral Cats

If you have traps in your garden, please go to Trap NZ – Whanganui, request membership to the Project and select urban or rural for your trap siting. This will enable you to register your traps, upload data and participate in the movement, and view the communal efforts achieved. You could also join our Predator Free Whanganui Facebook group if you would like to show your support.
