DATA SOURCE: Department of Conservation (DOC)
Adapted by Ministry for the Environment and Statistics New Zealand to provide for environmental reporting transparency
Dataset used to develop the "Land pests" indicator [available at statisticsnz.shinyapps.io/land_pest_animals?...]
We report on pest occupancy and abundance for ungulates (hooved animals such as deer, goats, and chamois), rabbits, hares, and possums on Public Conservation Land from 2013 to 2019 using a variety of measurement methods such as faecal pellet indices and chew cards. Occupancy is whether the target animal species / group is present or absent at a site. Abundance describes the number of animals at a site.
More information on this dataset and how it relates to our environmental reporting indicators and topics can be found in the attached data quality pdf.
