Picton Dawn Chorus - Restoring our birdlife together.
Picton Dawn Chorus is a community conservation project aimed at restoring native wildlife in Picton-Waikawa through controlling introduced mammalian predators (particularly rats, mustelids and possums). This will also create a halo around the Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary. The halo will provide additional safe habitat for native birds and prevent the re-invasion of predators in to the sanctuary.
The project includes both urban trapping (in residential gardens) and trap lines established in the towns reserves and bush areas (checked by a large team of volunteers).
