Greater Wellington Regional Pest Management Plan

Greater Wellington Regional Pest Management Plan 2019-2039 cover shot – Titipounamu (Rifleman) translocation to Zealandia in 2019 after 15 years of pest control in Wainuiomata.



Close your eyes, and picture a region filled with flourishing native plants, flitting birds, crawling insects, and healthy ecosystems. A resilient natural environment around us not just for our native species, but for quality drinking water too.

We’re striving to make this vision a reality, and in order to get there it’s important we build on what we’ve achieved in biosecurity in the past, and keep pests at bay. That’s where the Plan comes in.

The Plan guides us through the next twenty years of pest control. It represents a more connected approach to protecting the most valued spots in the region. It also means more collaborations with organisations, and with you the community, for a better future.
