Greater Wellington Regional Council offers the opportunity for members of the public to undertake pig hunting in East Harbour Regional Park. Permits will be issued for a 5 month period each year from 1 May to 30 September.

The hunting will play a part in controlling animals in the park, and also provide an opportunity for the recreational hunting of pigs within a designated hunting area in the Northern Forest Block.

Permits for non-firearm use will be issued on application. Please note Bow Hunters are also prohibited. Dog registration numbers or micro-chip numbers are required prior to permits being issued (maximum of 3 dogs).

Please email to apply for a permit.
