Leading environmentalist Sir Rob Fenwick says New Zealand needs a military style campaign to eliminate introduced predators, and advocates the continuing use of the controversial toxin 1080 as a weapon in the war on predators.

Sir Rob, who is chairman of the Predator Free NZ trust, says: “We simply have to keep using weapons like this however blunt some people think they are. They are really the most effective way we have of controlling predators in the forest.”
