A Survey of Introduced Species Management

Tēnā koe,

How iwi perceive, use and manage introduced species is important for the environmental future of Aotearoa New Zealand.


We are surveying representatives from iwi, hapū, and marae communities to understand how they are relating to, preparing for, and/or responding to introduced species. This information will help us identify unique iwi, hapū, and marae community innovations, shortcomings in current approaches, and opportunities for linking tribal and non-tribal entities and organisations in regional introduced species management. We hope to gather information that may help iwi, hapū, and marae communities, their descendants, and their introduced species management partners in the future.


The survey will take around 10-20 minutes to complete.


Introduced Species Survey 2019


We hope that you will be willing to forward this survey link to people (whānau, tribal representatives, others involved in environmental management for iwi, hapū, and marae communities) who you think would share relevant information for a survey of this kind.  We hope to encourage as much engagement as possible in order to elicit rich information about our environmental management concerns, opportunities, and practices. All information will be shared with you in order to support your continued efforts.


We will not ask or record your name in this survey. We will record the name of the entity, organisation or community you are affiliated with in some way so that we can sort out geographic and cultural differences in our survey sample. We will keep the information collected for this study secure and confidential. 

Please email us if there is anything that you would like to know about this study.
