Rural landowner survey on predator control

A report on a survey of landholder perceptions of predator control in the Cape to City Region has been released by the Hawke's Bay Regional Council.

It shows that the majority (87%) of surveyed landholders were supportive of control efforts because of benefits to native biodiversity and economic benefits from reduction in toxoplasmosis from control of feral cats.

The report was prepared by Pippa McKelvie-Sebileau of EIT's Research and Innovation Centre (RIC) and reviewed by Dr Christine Cheyne of RIC. Here is a summary of the findings and the report itself.
