Predator Free 2050 Limited is a Crown-owned, charitable company established to help deliver the New Zealand government’s ambitious goal of eradicating possums, stoats and rats by 2050.

We provide co-funding to enable predator control and eradication projects at large landscape scale and the breakthrough science needed to underpin them.

We occasionally solicit expressions of interest from community and council-led groups, assess them against criteria, work with other funders and develop contracts to enable delivery.

We are currently funding six large landscape projects, enabling predator control to eradication projects over 254,000 ha over five years. We plan to contribute $23.2m towards total project costs of $89.7m, a leverage ratio of 2.86:1.

We are also contributing $1m per annum towards breakthrough science guided by our Research Strategy.
