Spot the difference! This wallaby ‘exclosure plot’ was created to highlight the impact of wallaby grazing on our native bush. ❗On the left – the native bush cleared by wallabies ❗On the right – shows where wallabies have been excluded
Wallabies eat everything at their height, which means native seedlings have no chance to grow. This stops forest regeneration while reducing habitat for our native species and the damage can take years to undo! Wallabies also graze on productive farmland. Not only are they damaging our environment, but they’re costing Kiwi farmers millions in lost production by competing with livestock.
