Weeds, pests & diseases – unwanted species!

Biosecurity is all about protecting New Zealand from unwanted species by preventing undesirables from entering the country, managing or eliminating those that have established in the wild, and reducing the nasty impacts of unwanted species on our environment, economy and human health.

During BioBlitz, we record all the weeds and pests that we find.  Many of these are already known to live in the urban park area that we’re searching, but we often find a few surprises as well.

    How can a school group register to bring a class on Friday 30th March?

      Hi Julie

      we really appreciate you interest but we’re sorry, we cannot take any more bookings for schools on Friday 30th March as we are part of the South Auckland Schools’ Programme in the Botanic Gardens. We will have 500 children (plus parents and teachers) coming through the base camp marquee beteen 9am and 2.30 pm. However, it would be great if yoou could encourage parents to bring their kids along after school, for the evening field trips or for Saturday.

      best wishes
