Introduced Wildlife in New Zealand: A Survey of General Public Views

Author(s): Wayne Fraser


Issues involving introduced wildlife and their management are often controversial subjects, reflecting the diverse range of views held, particularly on environmental issues. Previously there has been little original research on public perceptions in relation to introduced wild animals and their management in New Zealand Since public attitudes ultimately play some part in determining official policy and can affect the success of some conservation and management programmes, there is a need for better understanding of how people perceive introduced wildlife and related issues. Indeed, recent changes in environmental legislation make specific provision for some public consultation in areas such as national and regional pest management strategies and the application of pesticides. This accessible report reveals a clear picture of public attitudes towards introduced wildlife and its management since the mid-1990s.
