Help protect our iconic wildlife from introduced predators.

Save our birdsong

Kiwicare is on a mission to help make New Zealand predator free by 2050. Its Predator-Free Kit has been designed to help ensure our collective backyard remains filled with birdsong. By using it, you can help keep our native species safe. 

Save our feathered friends

Every year, an estimated 25 million native birds are killed by introduced predators ranging from rats and mice to possums and hedgehogs*. These intruders also destroy native vegetation and compete for sources of food that many beloved – but endangered – birds, depend on. Take action to guard your backyard with the Predator-Free Kit, which aims to safely combat these unwanted pests. 

Packed with products

The Predator-Free Kit contains five products to help eliminate pests, including:

  • Rodent detector cards to help identify the culprits that could be picking off native wildlife.
  • No Rats & Mice bait blocks.
  • A trapping tunnel with pegs to keep it in place.
  • A Victor Modified Rat Trap, approved by the National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (NAWAC).
  • A packet of wildflower seeds you can plant to encourage bees; they help to keep the ecosystem healthy. 

Donating to nature

Kiwicare is donating a portion of the profits from sales of Predator-Free Kits to the Predator Free NZ Trust**. By purchasing a Predator-Free Kit, you can make a meaningful difference to help protect our irreplaceable wildlife by combating introduced predators in your own backyard. Together, we can make New Zealand a protected haven and allow iconic native birds – and other species of wildlife – to flourish.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
