Pest Management Plan

I have been asked to draw up a pest management plan for our Waikanae Estuary Care Group, and would be interested in seeing what other groups have come up with. Any help gratefully received.

I don’t have my own yet, but happy to share some of my research so far!
There’s a heap of info here (and a lot more if you want)

Some of the links below (mostly regional management plans) are fairly long-winded but they are thorough and even cherry-picking through the contents page may give you some good ideas:

I prefer going to professionals. Good luck!

You could consider using the Regional Council’s ecosystem plans as a template: Peka Peka is just north of the Waikanae and Waitohu is further up the coast. You could cut out the first couple sections of govt jargon and remove the bits about invasive plant control and you would have a pretty simple format.
