Biosecurity Hunt Was a Success

Thank you to everyone who supported
The Great Tauranga Moana Biosecurity Hunt

 This year we had 7 great hunts for locals and visitors to track down some of the most unwanted bugs to protect our region.  

Over 500 people participated in the hunts with over $2500 worth of prizes given away to lucky winners.

Participants learned:

  • How to identify invasive insects and animals
  • What damage these organisms can do to our environment and economy
  • What to do if you see one of these organisms in real life

They have been a great way to get out and exercise over the summer holidays, learn new knowledge, develop navigational skills, work as a team, and have fun!

We look forward to building on this success next year.
