Collaborative Project

Find-A-Pest is a collaborative biosecurity project between government and primary industry organisations, based at the University of Canterbury.

Efficient Biosecurity

By working together and sharing our knowledge we can improve how we manage biosecurity, efficiently and effectively. Pests don't respect organisational or regional boundaries, and the way we tackle biosecurity needs to be reflective of this.
