Biosecurity entries open

Entries are open for the 2022 New Zealand Biosecurity Awards.

Biosecurity deputy-director general Stuart Anderson said the awards recognised the outstanding contributions made to protect New Zealand against pests and diseases.

"Some New Zealanders don’t realise that the mahi they’re undertaking in their own backyards plays a critical role in our biosecurity system. From trapping pests like catfish, rats and stoats; to disease management in our forests, rivers and oceans; these are all important projects which strengthen our biosecurity system."

Entries close on July 31.
