Managing pest animals and plants is essential to help prevent their spread and damage to our region.

Head to our Pest Hub for detailed information about pest species in our region, both plants and animals.

Operational Plans

Each year we develop operational plans which detail our pest control for the coming year.

See the Regional Pest Management Operational Plan 2020/21.

See the Operational Plan Report 2019/20.

See the Regional Possum Predator Control Programme.

Other organisations' pest control

As well as our operations, Department of ConservationOSPRIlocal councils, landowners and the community are all involved in pest control.

This can make it quite confusing to figure out what precautions you need to take in your local park before you visit, so we recommend always checking any signage that might be erected a park entrances. This will let you know what is happening in that location, who is leading the work, and how to stay safe with your family and your pets.
