Community Project – Predator Free Wellington

On behalf of Predator Free Wellington: We are distributing Chew Cards in a few stations around the school.

Chew Cards are a device which you fill with peanut butter and attach them to low points of trees or in compost bins. 

These will track the activity of rats in Wellington and recognize where rats are. 

Please take a chew card or two from one of the stations around the school along with a usage guide as you are leaving.

Thank you for contributing to the predator-free effort!
