Adopt a trap

Glenfern Sanctuary is responsible for the pest management for the Kotuku Peninsula. 

Adopt a Trap Glenfern

We have a network of over 800 rat traps along more the 40 kms of trap lines. Keeping rat numbers down is important in order to protect the wonderful biodiversity and threatened species that call Kotuku Peninsula and Glenfern Sanctuary home. 

By adopting a trap you are helping us fund the costs involved in maintaining this network, from the comfort of your own home!​

This is a popular gift idea for those that have a passion for conservation and a great way to get involved in saving our endangered species.

The animated blue circles indicate traps that have already been adopted (you can click on these to see their adopted names), and the other coloured circles represent trap areas.
