Predator Free New Zealand

The Weekend, Saturday 10 January 2015

The Predator Free New Zealand campaign is now a few weeks old. Few would disagree with the idea, especially with so many endemic species under threat from a long list of introduced predators. But can we afford to even try to eradicate them from the mainland, let alone the suggested place to start - Stewart Island?

Lynne Freeman talks to Devon McLean from the Predator Free New Zealand Trust, Dr Andrea Byrom, from Landcare Research in Christchurch, Forest and Bird's Kevin Hackwell , and Paul Jansen who's worked in conservation management for almost 40 years and has been with this campaign since the start.
