Hundreds of anti-1080 protesters have came to Parliament on Saturday to call for an end to New Zealand’s use of the poison.
The Department of Conservation (DoC), Federated Farmers and Forest and Bird all support the use of 1080. However, groups of concerned environmentalists nationwide have called for it to be banned.
Protesters said the use of the poison needed to be a thing of the past.
However, Forest and Bird’s Kevin Hackwell said that “we understand why people may be concerned. The idea of using poisons – nobody wants to, but you have to, because we have to be killing those pests. If we don’t, our wildlife dies.”
