Te Whakahaumaru Taiao


Animal, aquatic, marine and plant pests

Our biosecurity team works with landowners to manage or eradicate pest plant and animals. Especially those species in the Regional Pest Management Plan that we want to eliminate from our region.

Our community places considerable value in our environment being in a clean and healthy state. This in turn contributes to both our wellbeing and prosperity. Managing the use, development and protection of our natural and physical resources now and into the future requires Council to use regulatory, science and community approaches to protecting the environment from the negative impact of pests - plants, animal and disease.
