Battle for our Birds Deer repellent maps

Members of the Game Animal Council and NZ Deerstalkers Association worked closely with DOC to secure the use of deer repellent to help protect some of our most vulnerable deer herds during the upcoming Battle for our Birds operations.

At short notice an online survey was developed and over 350 responses were collected in a 10 day period. This information helped inform discussions and set priorities. Some specific areas have been identified for mitigation.
