Wellingtonian Kelvin Hastie was instrumental in starting Wellington’s first predator free community – Crofton Downs Predator Free Community – which was a catalyst for Predator Free Wellington and the other suburban trapping groups that followed.

NEXT supported Kelvin for two and a half years while he mobilised other Wellington communities into action – using the Crofton Downs model to help set up similar systems for engagement and data collection. In that time, more than 40 suburbs joined the movement with a vision of making Wellington the first predator free capital city in the world.
