Members of the team that created this database have been involved in many meetings on 1080 with Maori organisations all over New Zealand. Many people requested access to research information on 1080. This database is a review of existing written material on 1080 impacts on taonga such as birds.
The database has been primarily designed to allow community workers at ‘flax-roots’ level, access to information that up until now has been contained in a large volume of often complex scientific papers and reports.
The database is pictorial in nature, with the information structured on a forest food web where 1080 is used to control possums. Users can navigate the information by clicking on hypertexts within the 'Foodweb'or the left hand navigation on each web page.
This database is a work in progress with new information being added periodically.
