Fiordland National Park NZ

Fiordland is a very popular active-travel destination for climbers and trampers, with the tracks Milford, Hollyford, Routeburn and Kepler all in or near the park. Off-track travel relies mainly on deer trails. Flooding, sandflies and bad weather are a hazard. Boat tourists are also attracted to Milford Sound, which has a small boat marina.

Fiordland National Park NZ

In the 1850s, red deer were introduced to NZ and they subsequently colonized Fiordland. By 1920s, herds of wild deer competed with NZ's cattle and sheep for feed, which resulted in pressure on the government from farmers. Deer cullers were employed in order to indiscriminately shoot deer to reduce the population. Combined with a blooming deer farming industry, it reduced the impact of aerial hunting. Market hunting from helicopters still continues, with the biggest market being Germany. The New Zealand government uses helicopters to poison deer and possums with aerial dropping of 1080 Poison (synthetic form of FCH2CO2Na / sodium fluoroacetate), despite some public opposition to its use.
