The Good Guys List is a list of all our traps and a claim to fame for all our trap sponsors, along with a tally of the captures for each trap.

UK based travel specialist New Zealand In Depth and their partners in Auckland, ID New Zealand, have very generously decided to donate all their future Wairaurahiri Jet commissions to purchase more stoat traps. A very big thank you to these guys and gals - their contributions to the stoat trapping will be amazing.

Eco adventure

A NZ wilderness adventure from start to finish. Don't miss this one, it's worth every cent. Beautiful native bush, a rocking and rolling jet boat ride, and barbequed venison for lunch at a quirky lodge on the isolated South coast. Wonderful!

Efforts to protect our beautiful environment.

HI Johan and Joyce,

A while back I walked the Humpridge Track with some friends and we were given your little bird-watching booklet, which I have in front of me. I remember also reading that through you we can sponsor a trap along the Humpridge track - is this correct? I thought I had kept that info but can't find it. I would like to do this if possible. I am so impressed with your efforts to protect our beautiful environment.

Could you please send me info or a link as to how I can make a donation.

Kind regards,

Sarah
