1080 OPERATIONS (1080 DROPS)

Protecting our agriculture and biodiversity

1080 is an emotive topic.  But Waikato Regional Council believes it's vital to protect our precious native forests and birds. And, in some places in our region, aerial 1080 operations are the only effective way to control their predators, such as possums, rats and stoats.

We've tried to provide you with as much information and assurance as we can, here, on the safety and benefits of using 1080. Just click on a topic, above.
