Become a volunteer

with our local predator trapping programme

What it takes to become a volunteer

human+nature is the name of our small community conservation group. We are primarily focused on trapping predators and our traps are funded by sales from Tony’s illustrations, as well as by Wellington City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council. Our name recognises the importance of reconnecting with nature, particularly in a rapidly urbanising world.

We would love to have your help and encourage you to join us. The more people who help, the greater the difference we will make. As well as trapping, there’s lots to do including biodiversity monitoring, weeding and tree planting.

So get in touch and start enjoying some of the most rewarding walks you’ll ever know!

How much time does it take?

We have over 50 traps spread over 175 hectares. Volunteers adopt a trap line, with anything from 4 to 12+ traps to look after. Most lines take 1-2 hours every 3 weeks.

Volunteer training

If you decide that going for long walks in the lovely Khandallah and Johnsonville Parks is for you, then we will show and supply you with everything you need to know and use.
