Through a series of surveys involving a number of questions posed to user groups, a list of high risk human activities was compiled based on user groups level of understanding of kauri dieback.
There was an inconsistency of peoples understanding of kauri dieback. All user groups could benefit from type specific information and education. Recreational users are mostly unaware of kauri dieback followed by tourism. Training, certification and best practice were all suggestions made by user groups to improve awareness.
