Predator Free 2050 (PF2050) is the ambitious goal of ridding New Zealand of possums, rats and stoats by 2050. To support this goal, the government is investing $1.4m annually to improve current predator control tools via the Tools to Market (T2M) project.
The purpose of T2M is ‘To make widely accessible the tools needed to achieve the Predator Free 2050 goals’ and this will be achieved by investing where we can accelerate existing product development and have tools ready for use within one to five years. Investment in new tools will advance predator eradication, monitoring, and data management, as well as ‘scaling up’ predator suppression in the landscape across all contexts and habitats. Investment in current tools will expand their application into new contexts and habitats or otherwise substantially lift their contribution to achieving the Predator Free 2050 goals.
T2M in 2019 will seek Registrations of Interest (ROI) from the market against three procurement themes:
• Effective techniques for detecting predators at low densities
• Effective predator removal
• Protecting the gains
Successful applicants will develop innovative tools that are consistent with the procurement themes. Both individually and combined, the procured tools will be powerful and a step change in the way that predator control occurs in New Zealand.
Tools to Market will assist developers in achieving this by providing funding to complete development and then subsequently to facilitate prototype testing at a landscape scale. This support will provide a firm basis for developers to deploy their solutions throughout New Zealand to achieve Predator Free 2050.
