Report a Pest

Use this form to report a sighting of any pests you see in New Zealand (Reports of sightings from countries other than New Zealand will be discarded from research data.)

Please note that a Park Name may cause problems, even if the system seems to recognise it at first. If that happens try and see if the park has a street number type address.
