DOC is driving innovation to make mainland eradication possible.

We support Kiwi inventors, businesses and entrepreneurs to build the path to a predator free New Zealand. We fund projects with the potential to create jobs across the country and reach national and global markets. 

In just a few years, we’ve already changed the game for predator eradication by trialling new baits and traps, artificial intelligence, drone technology, and long-life lures. This shows what can be achieved when we invest in new solutions.
