As part of its science strategy Predator Free 2050 Limited is collaborating with the Department of Conservation and Zero Invasive Predators Ltd (ZIP) on a project to completely remove possums from a 12,000 hectare block within the Perth Valley (South Westland )and then prevent them from re-establishing. Can this approach negate the need for repeated use of landscape-scale aerial 1080? Can this predator management approach also work for ship rats and stoats and pave the way toward Predator Free 2050?
Dave Hansford recently reported on the project for The Dominion newpaper ‘A Zero-Sum Game’.
