BAN1080 PRESS RELEASE

DOC’s Battle for the Birds plans to spread a deadly inhumane poison called 1080 over 700,000 hectares of New Zealand’s wilderness over coming months, in response to a possible heavy beech seeding over most South Island forests, which DOC believes will lead to an increase in predators on native birds.

However DOC’s own Science and Research Division paper published March 2010 says “Predicting the frequency of predation cycles based on mast years may not be possible, as the periodicity of full beech mast appears to vary between beech species, latitudes and altitudes, and in different climatic conditions”

DOC’s own Nov 2010 Forest Bird mortality paper records 19 native bird species have had corpses test positive for 1080 after aerial operations, 11 of those native species have not had the poisoning risk quantified.

Of 322 aerial 1080 operations in ten years to 2008, only 15 involved observations with banded or radio carrying birds, only 25% of surveys included an untreated control area and none took advantage of latest Before/After Control/Impact survey design.

DOC’s Nov 2013 Principles Based Decision Tree advises DOC planners to pause for reflection before exposing Nationally Endangered bird species to aerial 1080.

Vast areas of the planned 1080 drop have never been assessed for what bird species and populations are present, some of these previously un-poisoned areas have anecdotal accounts of significant bird populations.

Add to this the indiscriminate nature of the poison, the 8-24 hours for birds and up to 4 days for mammals, to die a terrifying struggling cruel death, the potential risk to human health, and the risks to our tourism and export markets, a political party is being formed in response.
