Friends of Flora - Get Involved

Become an Active Volunteer

Everything Friends of Flora has achieved in this special corner of Kahurangi National Park is down to the hard mahi of a dedicated team of volunteers that have contributed enthusiasm, skill and time over many years.

Ongoing predator trapping and biodiversity monitoring remain essential. Together they provide a range of volunteer activities throughout the year.

Friends of Flora has a dedicated training trap line, enabling new but inexperienced volunteers to gain confidence in trapping protocols and off-track work, in the varied terrain of the Flora. Following their induction, volunteers join existing trapping teams, and can progress to being a trapping Line Leader.

Footprint tracking tunnels (FTT) are utilised as overnight snapshots to monitor rodent activity - particularly important in pre and post beech mast periods.

Survey and monitoring work is usually undertaken as a group, and contributes to a broadening in environmental knowledge and skills - together with the satisfaction of working with like-minded conservationists.

The alpine monitoring is undertaken during the warmer months on the Arthur Range, and provides a wonderful window to the varied flora, and the karst rock formation, that make this National Park, and the Flora, so special.

If you have the enthusiasm to become a member of the Friends of Flora team, and want to contribute towards our work in the National Park, then we would like to hear from you, here.
