A trap in every fifth backyard: Why is it important & how it would look – Luke Judd

What would NZ be like without native birds? Luke quotes ‘It can be difficult to appreciate what we have until we’ve lost it’ Native birds give our land vibrancy, depth, and uniqueness. They play an important part in our ecosystem, affecting our wider native fauna and flora. What dangers are our birds facing? Is trapping the best answer? Is it safe? How would urban areas change when they are predator free? Is it achievable?

Luke coordinates Predator Free BOP, which is a not-for-profit project whose goal is to get a trap in every fifth backyard in suburban Tauranga and Western BOP.
