[PDF 223 KB]

A Collective workshop in September 2018 considered that although the Predator Free 2050 (PF2050) goals are being addressed through several research programmes, other research needs and wider tool development for different species – particularly those for small mammal predators that fall outside the scope of PF2050 – are not as well-resourced and could benefit from a collective approach.
