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 trialing new baits and traps, artificial intelligence, drone technology, and long-life lures. These new tools demonstrate that eradication is achievable when we invest in new solutions.
