Logo for Picton Dawn Chorus Picton Dawn Chorus

Picton Dawn Chorus is an Incorporated Society, set up by a group of passionate Picton residents with the aim of controlling introduced predators in order to restore our native bird life. The Society is committed to using humane and environmentally sensitive methods of predator control. The work has been split in to four stages: 1) the Victoria Domain, 2) Urban Picton and Waikawa, 3) The Wedge, 4) The surrounding hills of Picton. Traps have been set out on the Victoria Domain and these are checked and maintained by volunteers on a weekly roster. In Picton/Waikawa township, residents are trapping in their own gardens. We are always looking for people interested in joining our group and becoming involved in the project. We need a large team of volunteers to check the rat, stoat and possum traps placed out on the town's reserves every weekend. We also need volunteers to help with data entry, publicity, fund raising, photography, event organising, steering committee members......if you want to help, we want to hear from you!
