THINXTRA IS SUPPORTING THE PREDATOR FREE NZ 2050 PLAN WITH UNIQUE SOLUTIONS

New Zealand has adopted the “ambitious goal” of eradicating its soil of rats, possums, stoats and all other invasive mammals by 2050. The name of the plan: Predator Free 2050.

Overview

Thinxtra is part of this movement to support the plan with our all-in-one program:

Solutions for Predator Control

Pest Trap Monitoring

Predator-solution-1

Rat Activity Monitoring

Predator-solution-2

Other Solutions

The Sigfox network is a global network with a global ecosystem of remote sensors solutions. So, although for Predator Control Projects, the primarily use would be for remote monitoring of pest traps, the same network can be used to provide better insights into Assets in the area, geolocation and safety of People (rangers and volunteers) and the overall health of the Environment. An example of these sensors and user cases are below:

For Assets and People

Access Door Monitoring
