How we can protect New Zealand from pests and diseases
Protect what you love. We all have a role to play in protecting this beautiful, bountiful land from pests and diseases.
Pests and diseases can ruin our way of life— including our enjoyment of Aotearoa New Zealand's great outdoors, the kai we eat, the water we drink and our taonga native plants and animals.
Biosecurity requires a team effort where we are all taking action to reduce biosecurity risks within our homes, at work, while enjoying the great outdoors, when we travel and within our communities.
It takes all of us to protect what we’ve got. Ko Tātou This Is Us. Learn more about how we can protect New Zealand from pests and diseases.
