About Your Donations

Our community’s involvement has always been critical to our mission, demonstrating a shared commitment to preserving our local environment for future generations. Your support empowers us to continue our work and inspires others to join us in our mission.

Where does the money go?

You’ve probably seen our hard-working team around town or in the bush, and this is of course the core of our work. In addition to this there’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes. From strategy and planning, to procurement, health and safety, communications, admin, and meeting with landowners and businesses, there’s a huge amount of work that goes into a successful and efficiently-run predator elimination programme.

Other ways to help the project


Volunteers enable us to do more and expand our project faster, so we’d love to hear from you if you’d like to be involved.

Land access

On Russell peninsula most of the land is private, so by giving access to locate traps on your land, you are helping our project to achieve our goal.


The other way to help the project is to report any rat, possum, or stoat sightings in your neighbourhood, and trappers will get on to it.
