Animal Pest Management

Animal pests have a significant and adverse effect on the region's pasture, bush, and water quality and consequently on human health and the regional economy.

Regional control animal pests are possums, rabbits, and rooks. 

We manage extensive programmes - in both town and country - to keep possums to the low levels we have now achieved in Hawke’s Bay. We have set a Rook Eradication Zones with the objective of eradicating rooks north of State Highway 5.  We can support farmers in controlling rabbits.

Site specific programmes can be set up for some species under certain circumstances, ie feral goats, deer, pigs, mustelids, feral cats and rats.

What we do?

HBRC’s Animal Pest Advisory Team is responsible for the day to day management of HBRC’s animal pest programmes and site specific control work, plus advisory services. Ground work is chiefly carried out by contractors.
