Introduction

New Zealanders care about nature and it’s our job to protect it. 1080 is proven to work safely in reducing predators, and we need to use it to save our native wildlife and forests.

Highlights

Monitoring shows aerial 1080 is an effective tool to protect our native species and restore our forests.

The biggest threat to our wildlife is introduced predators such as rats, stoats and possums. About 80% of our bird species are at risk of extinction.

So we face a choice: unchecked predators and silent forests, or pest control and the survival of our native species.
