Like Apples on Trees – The Predator Free 2050 Goal is a cartoon published by The Spinoff and the Department of Conservation that tells the inspiring story of the nationwide Predator Free 2050 movement. Through the eyes of beloved kākāpō, the cartoon shows how precious and unique Aotearoa New Zealand’s native plants and animals are, and how introduced predators like rats, stoats, and possums threaten their survival. United by the Predator Free 2050 goal, communities across Aotearoa are coming together to act for nature and have already made big strides. Together, we can achieve a future where native plants and animals flourish and are safe from the threat of introduced predators.
