Students from Tomarata and Kaipara Flats Schools are enjoying a term of
tracking and trapping with the CatchIT Schools programme.
These 8-10 year olds are learning how to help native wildlife survive by using a variety of traps and bait to catch pests. In just a couple of weeks they have caught over 100 pests between them – including a stoat and a weasel!
Congratulations to these students for a great effort. It is ongoing pest control efforts like this that will help bring back the native birds and animals.
