Abstract

The Pest Free Upper Hutt (PFUH) organization, located in Upper Hutt, New Zealand, works with the local community to eradicate non-native pests to increase native birdlife in the area. We analyzed the barriers to participation and identified opportunities to increase awareness of, and participation in, the program. We accomplished this by interviewing the public and numerous coordinators and through an online survey that geographically targeted the Upper Hutt area. Based on these findings, we produced recommendations to further increase involvement in PFUH.
