New Zealand is known for cutting edge technologies in pest control,
pest eradication and species management. These are key focuses
of the Poutiri Ao ō Tāne project.

To measure the effectiveness of wide-scale pest-control in a highly modified agricultural landscape, an intensive research programme has been implemented. Led by Landcare Research, it will be aided significantly by Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, DOC, local contractors and volunteers.

Taking it further

Information derived from the Poutiri Ao ō Tāne research programme will have relevance across New Zealand including its sister project Cape to City. Consequently, emphasis will be placed on publicizing research findings through the peer reviewed science literature, ecological restoration newsletters, and the popular media. This will ensure that effective methods can be adopted across New Zealand, and internationally.
