Pest animals are often nocturnal and hard to spot. They leave tell-tale clues that tell us they are in the area.

This year, we will be adding eleven more pest species to our line-up of culprits, thanks to the generous support of the New Zealand Lottery Grants Board.
Dama and Bennett's wallabies will be amongst the newly featured species. They currently occur in areas of Otago, Canterbury, Bay of Plenty and Waikato, and their distribution and impacts are being assessed pending a decision in September 2016 on their 'unwanted organism' status in New Zealand.
