Can Rats Climb Trees?
If anyone asks can Rats Climb Trees, well show them this video from the Waitakere Ranges.
This video shows Rats climbing up trees, footage was taken near one of our Possum leg hold traps. Rats can run up and down trees and this is how they eat birds eggs and attack native birds in their nests.
Rats, possums and stoats kill 25 million of our native birds every year in New Zealand. Lets do our bit to reduce this.
Please join a Predator free Group near you or go and get some traps to help the native birds of New Zealand.
