We know that biological diversity is critical for our wellbeing and ultimately our survival, yet the number of species thriving in Aotearoa and around the world is declining. To raise awareness of biodiversity and to encourage people to be part of the solution, the UN created the International Day for Biological Diversity. This year’s theme is 'Building a shared future for all life'. Our co-founder Robbie van Dam shares why we should care about biodiversity, why trapping introduced predators effectively and humanely is so important, and how we can all make a difference - for ourselves and future generations.
Having our roots in conservation, we know that zero non-target kills for any effective pest management tool is a challenge.
No two environments are the same - neighbouring backyards can vary due to the in-situ flora and fauna. This makes a ‘one size fits all’ country-wide plan impossible.
But we are 100% committed to getting the balance as optimal as possible, ensuring a swift removal of pests to increase biodiversity outcomes while mitigating the risk to non-target species
