Predator Free Hauraki Coromandel
Hauraki Coromandel is moving towards becoming predator free by 2030, so we’ve teamed up with Predator Free Hauraki Coromandel Community Trust (PFHCCT) to help make the region’s conservation goals a reality.
By partnering with PFHCCT, we’re in turn supporting 60-plus community conservation groups who look after the Hauraki Coromandel environment.
We support the trust’s field support team – a new service designed to provide practical grassroots help to community conservation groups across Hauraki Coromandel.
The field support team provides a range of services including:
• Advice on how to improve the effectiveness of predator control
• Latest techniques and best practice
• Help with track planning, trap distribution and placement
• Track cutting, clearing and marking
• GPS and trap data recording training
• Monitoring assistance
• Invasive plant control
• Connecting groups to specialist services and training
We’re looking forward to seeing how this partnership will benefit these communities socially, culturally and economically, as well as the natural environment and biodiversity of the area in the future.
PFHCCT began in 2017 to support and promote the Hauraki Coromandel community conservation groups within a national Predator Free programme. A truly regional conservation project, the trust’s predator free aspirations take in a large area – from Moehau near the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to Te Aroha in the south.
