Sarah makes a difference

Sarah and her rat trap

Over the holidays Sarah has been picking cherries in the Upper Clutha. This week before heading back north to University she dropped into the Wanaka Community Workshop. Sarah was looking to make a contribution to our community.

She joined the team from the Mens Shed for a morning.

We are currently building a batch of sophisticated rat rats. The design of the trap reflects lessons learnt in the bush not only to more effectively catch the intended prey but also ensure kea and weka are protected.

Electric drill in hand Sarah joined the production line. She soon completed her first trap that will soon be deployed into our natural environment.

Its great to welcome visitors such as Sarah seeking to make a contribution to our community.
