Fact Sheet on ZIP trial in South Westland

Fact Sheet on ZIP trial in South Westland

ZIP and the Department of Conservation are investigating a method to completely remove possums, and potentially rats, from mainland sites.

If successful, this method of aerial predator control will reduce, and ultimately eliminate, the need for repeated wide scale application of toxins to remove predators; and provide a tool for progressing New Zealand towards its Predator Free 2050 goal.

The attached Fact Sheet contains information and context about the proposed trial.

You can learn more about the new enclosure here and here, and a few photos from the day are shared after the jump.
