Pest Control

Pests have a significant impact on both our terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Find out how DOC and many organisations across the country work to protect our taonga:

  • Learn to recognise some of New Zealand's worst pests

  • Discover why their life-histories and habits make them a threat to our wildlife

  • Identify the types of traps used for different species

  • Observe trap operation

  • Think critically about control of introduced predators

We encourage students to consider how trapping may contribute to environmental goals for their school.
