Where we work - our biosecurity and biodiversity programme

We manage a comprehensive biosecurity programme in both the North and South Islands. Our operations specialise in aquatic and land-based pest and weed management, alongside mapping, monitoring, and surveillance of pests and weeds.

In the South Island our biosecurity work focuses on Toitū Te Whenua managed areas of the Otago region, the Canterbury high country, including Te Manahuna – the Mackenzie Basin, and some of New Zealand’s most beautiful lakes and braided rivers including Lake Wānaka and the Rakaia River.  

In the North Island priority areas include the Waikato River and Te Arawa Lakes where weed infestations impact the cultural and recreational value of these places.
