The Trust has partnered with the following organisations:
Kiwibank Predator Free Communities
A strong partnership with Kiwibank empowering communities to take on the predator free challenge in their own backyards to restore NZ’s native wildlife. There are currently 45 communities working with the Trust to achieve their goals and many more who wish to be involved. Supported communities receive subsidised equipment, expertise and support to make their communities predator free.
Kiwibank Predator Free Schools
This programme helps restore NZ’s native wildlife within schools. The funding allows students to have a hands on experience that supports the work they are doing in the classroom.
Holiday Parks Association
The Holiday Park Association has over 300 parks around the country with a huge number of domestic and international visitors. This partnership helps profile the vision of a predator free New Zealand, as well as allowing holiday parks to be business leaders in this space.
NZ Farm Environment Trust (in conjunction with the Ballance Farm Environment Awards)
The NZ Farm Environment Trust runs the Ballance Farm Environment Awards and we are a national sponsor of this awards programme.
The Trust is proud to recognise and support the predator control efforts of farmers with our Predator Free Farm Award.
Many farmers have systems in place to effectively manage and monitor predators including possums, rats, feral cats, ferrets, weasels and stoats. A number of farmers have been involved in significant predator control programmes on their land for many years, and they see the value of predator eradication on their properties.
Our Predator Free Farm Award acknowledges and celebrates those doing great work and hopefully inspires more farmers to get involved in the predator free movement.
