The Great Tauranga Moana Biosecurity Hunt


27 December 2021 to 07 February 2022


Multiple locations around Tauranga
Bay of Plenty

Calling all adventurers! Have you got what it takes to hunt down the 'most wanted' invasive insects and animals and protect the Bay of Plenty?

Use your wits, knowledge, and orienteering skills to find the 'locations' of these pesky creatures, answer quiz questions, and 'report' them to biosecurity experts.

By finishing the hunt, you could win big – with $2,500 worth of experiences from local businesses up for grabs.


You can join the hunt from 4 locations:

  1. Mount Maunganui (Mauao)
  2. Tauranga Waterfront (The Strand)
  3. Te Puke
  4. Katikati
