Biosecurity is the process of detecting and controlling unwanted crop weeds, pests and diseases. Aotearoa New Zealand has a unique but fragile natural ecosystem, which developed without many of the pests that are common elsewhere in the world.

Biosecurity isn’t limited to airports and seaports. Learn more about biosecurity and the role we can all play to protect our country.
