At the start of 2021, the club was invited to adopt a trapping line in Mount Cook Village as part of the Predator Free 2050 Stoat Project. We are inviting all members to get involved on your next trip down to Mount Cook.

The project is coordinated by David Sagar at the Department of Conservation Visitor Centre Aoraki Mt Cook. If you’d like to get involved the information below will help you on your way!

The line needs to be checked once a month. Send a message email to trips@cmc.nz if you can lend a hand. We will send you all the details and provide all the tools you will need.

What’s involved

If it’s your first time, you will need to do an induction with DOC which takes 30mins or 1 hour. The induction includes instruction on trap setting, health and safety, and how to use the Trap.NZ App.

The line takes a couple of hours to check the 9 traps. All the traps are GPS located.

See the Trapping line info sheet for more details
