Cambridge aka Town of Trees, encompasses not only the Waikato River but many gullies, nature reserves, parks and bush fragments. It is in these areas that there is the greatest biodiversity potential as refuges for our native flora and fauna, but also unfortunately for introduced predator pests. Predator Free Cambridge is a community group helping Cambridge residents remove rats, stoats and possums, to protect our native flora and fauna. Aotearoa has set a goal of being predator free by 2050, which makes it ambitious, but achievable through the hard work of our communities.
Help reach the goal by joining Predator Free Cambridge's Market stall team. We set up a stall at the popular Cambridge Trash and Treasure monthly market to help us engage with the community. It's on the 2nd Sunday of every month, come every or just some months. We're after enthusiastic people who can engage others; you'll be talking about the benefits of predator control, exciting local projects, demonstrating the setting of different traps and encouraging people to join in.
The more the merrier - so please encourage your friends to apply.
