Biosecurity in general is about keeping New Zealand free of unwanted organisms and for controlling, managing or eradicating them should they arrive in the country, to prevent or reduce any damage these may cause should they occur, and to protect and preserve the land, water, industry and people of New Zealand.  Controlling pest plants that have established here and pose a threat to our native ecosystems, industry or people is the type of Biosecurity work that is a growing component of Kaitiaki o Ngahere’s skill set.

As RPMS (Regional Pest Management Strategies) are becoming increasingly important in local Council priorities, the need for specialist pest plant and animal control skills is growing.  Kaitiaki o Ngahere has the necessary plant and ecosystem knowledge, teamed with GIS technology and rigorous quality control, to make your Biosecurity control and surveillance requirement projects successful.
