Predator Free Russell

Predator Free Russell is a community-led Predator Free 2050 project, with the goal to eliminate rats, stoats & possums from the Russell peninsula.

Mission

Predator Free Russell is a community-led Predator Free 2050 project, with the goal to eliminate rats, stoats & possums from the Russell peninsula.

By eliminating predators, we’ll create a mainland sanctuary where native birds and biodiversity can thrive, and endangered species can be reintroduced.

Project area

Our current* project area covers 430 hectares of ‘elimination zone’ and 370 hectares of ‘buffer zone’, and our plan is to expand the project area each year, to protect the entire 3,000 hectares of the Russell peninsula.

*April 2024

Predator Free Russell build on the legacy of over 20 years of predator control undertaken on the Russell peninsula by Russell Landcare Trust and other passionate conservationists.
