March 2016 Recipients
Boyle Village Conservation Group, received $2,242.67 to replace lure and CO2 canisters for predator traps, used to protect the native bird life surrounding the village.
The non-for profit organisation relies on the self-resetting possum and stoat traps as they require minimal man-power to maintain, which is key to the remote location of Boyle Village.
The impact that stoats, rats, possums and other predators have made on the birdlife in the Boyle Village area is quite drastic. Thanks to the Mazda Foundation grant the group can maintain large numbers of traps, minimising the damage caused by the predators and helping to replenish the native bird population.
