Barriers to Compliance: Dogs in New Zealand National ParksPublic Deposited
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The New Zealand Department of Conservation is seeking to combat barriers to compliance with their no dog in National Parks policy. Experts and current literature agree that dogs pose a significant threat to New Zealand’s native fauna. We used surveys and interviews to assess the public’s perceptions of the dog ban in National Parks. While the majority of the population knows about the ban, casual park visitors do not always know the rules while others simply choose to ignore them. We provide recommendations to DOC about how to refine their current communications, develop a national awareness campaign, and improve their Compliance and Law Enforcement system to improve compliance with the ban.
