Innovative tools and technology
IntroductionDOC 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.
Tools to Market
Our programme invests $1.4m per year to accelerate the development of new predator control tools and technology by supporting leading organisations.
