Massive March tally of predators removed

Nicole Swain from Predator Free Normandale

Hi Normandale
I hope you are all taking your time to enjoy the neighbourhood.
Those of you that are still working in essential businesses. Keep up the good work and thank you.

WOW!! What a massive March we had.
Thank you to those who are trapping and reporting all your catches to us. I feel we are still a long way off before we "flatten our curve", but every catch counts.
March's Tally
4 Hedgehogs - 79 Mice - 83 Rats - 1 Stoat.
Total = 167 predators removed from Normandale

Our previous largest tally was August 2019 with
1 Hedgehog - 18 Mice - 83 Rats.
Total = 102

One of the cool things about this, is the increase in bird life we will have over time. More and more reports of Kakariki in Normandale are coming in. Just yesterday I saw one on the Zigzag track below Pekanga Rd. Keep an eye and ear out, and see if you can spot one too.

All the best and stay safe.

How can I help look after others?

Grace from Hutt City Council

Unless you are an essential worker, the best way you can help others is by staying home and helping people from there.
Kindness is an incredibly powerful way to show you are united against COVID-19. You can make a huge difference by talking to people over the phone or online:

- Checking in on older relatives or vulnerable people to make sure they have everything they need.

- Talking to friends, whānau and neighbours over the phone to see how they are and if they need support.

These kinds of connections and offers of help will go a long way to getting others through COVID-19.
