About us:

Welcome to CatchIT! We are a one-stop shop for data management and analysis for community pest control projects. We can store and organise your data from trap-lines, bait-lines, and tracking tunnels, and we provide a suite of maps, graphics, and analyses to display your results.

CatchIT is suitable for community projects, conservation management, and scientific research. There is no charge or fee. It is coordinated by Rachel Fewster of the University of Auckland.
