Biosecurity is about keeping our environment safe from pests and diseases and managing or eradicating those that are already here. This page has information about some of the challenges we face.

Biosecurity responsibilities are shared between central government, regional councils, industry and landowners. Everybody has a role to play in preventing pests and diseases from entering the country and in helping to stop their spread if they do get here.

Specific information on managing some of the pests already here can be found in the pest and weeds section:
