Regional Council funding
Management of most pests is the responsibility of the landowners. However, in some cases the Regional Council can provide the following funding:
- The Biodiversity Programme provides funding and technical assistance to landowners and community groups for pest control on land with high ecological values.
- The Environmental Enhancement Fund (EEF) can fund pest control on public land
- Targeted pest control may be carried out on particular pests in a specific area, such as Asiatic knotweed around Rotorua.
