Why making New Zealand Predator Free matters

We are lucky to share New Zealand with some amazing wildlife that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Because New Zealand is isolated from the rest of the world, our birds, insects and reptiles evolved without the threat of mammalian predators. This means that they are especially vulnerable to introduced predators.  As a result, thousands of our native species are now at risk. And many are on the verge of extinction.

The three predators that have been identified as the biggest threats to our declining biodiversity are stoats, rats and possums. This huge impact is the reason why they are targeted for complete eradication by the Predator Free 2050 initiative, to protect our native animals and improve ecological diversity.

Let’s all work together to leave behind a legacy we can be proud of for future generations of New Zealanders, and the world, as they watch our land recover and thrive.
