BENEFITS of Pest Free Banks Peninsula/Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū

The biodiversity gains include growing populations of tūī, ruru (morepork), pīwakawaka (fantail), kororā (white flippered little blue penguin), hoiho (yellow-eyed penguin) and tītī (sooty shearwater), jewelled geckos, spotted skinks, the Banks Peninsula tree wētā and Akaroa daisies. All these contribute to creating a native taonga for the people of Ōtautahi / Christchurch, Canterbury and visitors to the area.

Active pest management reduces or removes stressors from the ecological system, which in turn contributes to species being more resilient to other environmental stressors and vastly increasing their chances of survival.
