Trap library making a difference

Wanaka Backyard Trapping is a community organisation all about giving the local native wildlife a hand. They do this by enabling residents across the Upper Clutha to trap predators in their backyards.

Wanaka Backyard Trapping manages a trap library. People can borrow for free traps from the library to target rats, stoats and other predators that threaten our endangered wildlife.

The trap library is hosted at the Wanaka Community Workshop. The library is easy to find. Its located right out front of the Workshop on Gordon Road.

While the MenShed team built the library it is managed day to day by Wanaka Backyard Trapping.

Until recently all the traps were out and about in backyards across the Upper Clutha. A few are now back – contact Wanaka Backyard Trapping to pick one up.

Together we can make a difference for the wildlife across all our backyards.
