Predator Free 2050 Limited is responsible for directing a significant amount of Crown investment into the Predator Free Programme, with a focus on breakthrough science and large scale predator control and eradication initiatives.
A project aimed at creating a Predator Free Hawke’s Bay has been launched in Napier (5pm Monday 2 July 2018) with the announcement of a $1.6 million kick-start in funding from the Government. Hawke’s Bay is the latest region to get behind the country’s goal to become Predator-Free by 2050.
A research strategy has been designed to develop a science solution capable of eradicating at least one small mammalian predator from the mainland; an important milestone on the road to a predator free New Zealand.
In 2017, Predator Free 2050 Limited called for Expressions of Interest from parties that are capable and committed to achieving the Government’s ambitious goal to rid New Zealand of possums, rats and stoats by 2050.
