A set of general objectives have also been developed for the Central North Island Sika Foundation, which include:

  • To actively manage the central north island Sika herd in order to provide enhanced benefits to hunters and a higher level of protection for the forests and grasslands in which they live.
  • To advance a management regime that involves a collaborative partnership between recreational Sika hunters, the Game Animal Council, the Department of Conservation, local Iwi, interested landowners, and other stakeholders.
  • To achieve and maintain consistent, appropriate harvest levels of healthy Sika by better coordination of recreational Sika hunting.
  • To increase the understanding, by recreational Sika hunters, of the Sika herd through better information and education.
