Citizen Science Month - Finished for 2019

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Citizen Science Month between the 28th July and

31st August 2019.

The results will help Pest Free Kaipātiki to track progress in restoring our local native bush and wildlife.

In addition to our annual predator detection chew card campaign, this year we included four extra activities to allow everyone in the community to take part:


To launch Citizen Science Month we hosted a Family Fun Day on Sunday 28 July. Thanks to all the attendees, sponsors, volunteers and Kauri Park School for helping make it possible. We were delighted to have guest speakers Suzy Cato, Kila Haitana and Brett Stansfield who made the day even more special. Watch the video.

Participants were able to learn up to five simple ways they and their families could contribute towards science and environmental protection across the Kaipātiki Local Board area.

Pest Free Kaipātiki was delighted to have Sumsung New Zealand as one of our official

sponsors of Citizen Science Month. Samsung New Zealand is proud to support Pest

Free Kaipātiki and all the work we do in the local community.
