Trapping Co-Ordinator

Whakatipu Wildlife Trust is a volunteer organisation. Our vision is to create and maintain a predator free environment throughout the greater Lake Whakatipu area to enable our birds and other native wildlife to flourish. We look after around 60 trapping groups, each with many volunteers who are passionate about conserving and improving the biodiversity in our district. Having 2-3 co-ordinators on board would help us support our wide network of groups and achieve our mission effectively.

The trapping co-ordinator will:

  • ensure there is a roster of volunteers to check traps
  • make sure the data is entered into Trap NZ
  • send updates to the group from time to time
  • develop relationships with a group of dedicated conservation volunteers
  • keep the team informed and engaged

A full training will be provided, and you will be introduced to the team so everything runs smoothly! Ongoing support is available as and when needed.

This is a home or office based role although could be combined with trapping activities if preferred.

Have a look at our website https://whakatipuwildlifetrust.org.nz for more information.


Ideally, you are someone who is:

  • organised
  • outgoing
  • passionate about conservation
  • have access to a computer and a phone

Time commitment

One hour per week would suffice for a trapping group, but co-ordinators might choose to help with more than one group.
