How eCoTrack Works

eCoTrack enables local communities to track a diverse, comprehensive range of ecological and conservation activities.

Initiatives, such as weed and predator control, monitoring and eradicating pollutants, or tracking forestation and biodiversity, become manageable and efficient.

Data input is extremely easy for individuals. By networking and aggregating national data we produce a comprehensive picture of pest eradication and the re-establishment of native flora and fauna. This shareable record is the key to helping NZ achieve its goal of predator-free status efficiently and effectively.

Data is input primarily via the easy-to-use eCoTrack mobile app which aggregates and socialises records from the individual to a local community hub, to a regional control centre, and ultimately to a comprehensive national database.

Inputs can be as diverse as the number of initiatives that individuals and groups are willing to take on; eCoTrack simplifies, enables and feeds back, to create a remarkably frictionless tool for eco-warriors.

An interview with Leo and Cole

Leo and Cole from the Wood Bay Ginger Ninjas explain some simple safety tips for eradicating weeds.


We are committed to eliminating the possums that shred our native trees; the rats and other predators that eat native baby birds and eggs and the weeds that strangle native bush.
