The Pest Free Hauraki Gulf campaign is a joint initiative between DOC and Auckland Council to help protect conservation islands in the Hauraki Gulf.

The Pest Free Islands in the Hauraki Gulf provides a haven for some of our most endangered animals and plants, including sea birds, tuatara and takahē. Our Pest Free Hauraki Gulf campaign ensures we all play our part to guard these specials places.

  • Check your vessel and gear for pests before you leave the mainland.
  • If you're a commercial operator, make sure to get a Pest-free Warrant.
