Entries are now open for the 2022 New Zealand Biosecurity Awards. These awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding contributions made around Aotearoa New Zealand to protect our country against pests and diseases. Last year had the highest number of entries in the history of the Biosecurity Awards. Winning projects included: a world-leading maritime intelligence tool that can detect hitch-hiker pests from space, a highly sought-after marine biosecurity team in Bay of Plenty, and an ecological restoration project turning retired exotic forestry into a mosaic of sustainable land uses. Entries close 5pm, July 31. To find out more about the award categories and to enter, go to www.thisisus.nz/newsevents/biosecurity-awards.
