Culprits

If you think you know what animal pest you have, take a look at its species page.

These animal species are regarded as pests in New Zealand because, when feral or simply roaming outdoors, they threaten the health of our native ecosystems or our primary production sector. Where valued in other situations for hunting, production or as pets, management is required to minimise their pest impacts.
