Predator control programme

Note: DOC's National Predator Control Programme was previously called Battle for our Birds.

DOC delivers the Battle for our Birds predator control programme over about 800,000 ha of conservation land to protect our most at-risk populations of vulnerable native species. The public has a high level of interest in ensuring that pest control techniques are used in an appropriate manner that does not put New Zealanders or their environments at risk.

DOC takes a fully open and transparent approach to its work. We regularly publish updates, open data, live maps and reviews of our pest control work. This includes:
