Auckland Hui announced to discuss the unique Border Biosecurity issues facing Māori

Better Border Biosecurity (B3) is holding a hui to build a better understanding of the unique issues facing Māori around potential incursions of new plant pests and diseases.

Pests and pathogens like kauri dieback (that threatens our kauri), tomato potato psyllid (that threatens potato and poroporo), and myrtle rust (that threatens pōhutukawa and mānuka) are biosecurity threats that may significantly impact plants of importance to Māori.

The hui will include presentations from researchers about pests and pathogens that threaten our shores, the potential impact on taonga species, and discuss when, who and how to involve Māori in the preparation, detection and response to new incursions.
