Biosecurity keeps our incredible home safe from pests and diseases.
Ko Tātou This Is Us asks us to take a moment to think about how
biosecurity protects our way of life, the outdoor environment where we fish, farm,
hunt and explore, the beautiful biodiversity of our unique ecosystem and even the food we eat.
Every New Zealander has a role to play in preventing pests and diseases from
getting into New Zealand or helping to stop their spread if they do get here.
It takes all of us to protect what we’ve got. Ko Tātou This Is Us.
