want to help?

How can we count the ways? Actually, quite easily although they are many and varied depending on your personal preferences.


If you are an outdoors-y type you may be keen on joining our staunch band of trampers and trappers. You, and a few mates, could put some purpose in your fresh air excursions by putting your names down to clear a trap line every so often. Safety is of paramount importance so we’ll make sure you’re trained and properly equipped. Email us at moaconservationtrust@gmail.com


Not so keen on all that exercise nonsense, but like the sound of birdsong when it’s in your neck of the woods? Then you can help us by buying a trap. Or two, or ten! Or you could sponsor a trap, by paying for a year’s worth of bait. We also need funds to buy a couple more Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs). We have these in case one of our tramping crew get lost or there’s an accident out in the bush.


We’re a registered charity so your donations are tax deductible. You help to wipe out a possum and get some money back - what a bonus!


However, it’s not all about the money. We’d be grateful for any time you can give too. We need volunteers to help with administration, fundraising and event management.  Email us
at moaconservationtrust@gmail.com  to find
out more.


Everyone donating funds, goods or time are acknowledged as Friends of Moa Conservation Trust for the calendar year the donation is made.

The A12 is a state of the art trap which kills
in seconds, releases the carcass and reloads automatically. These are the type we will be
laying in Stage 3
