The NZBI is an incorporated society that exists to advance the cause of Biosecurity in New Zealand. Our mission is "Working together to protect New Zealand from the adverse impacts of invasive species".
Spanning the length and breadth of New Zealand, the NZBI's growing membership is over 400 members strong. Collectively they are the engine driving New Zealand's world-class Biosecurity system. The Institute brings together dedicated, passionate people studying, working, or volunteering their time to protect this beautiful country from the impacts of invasive species. It is a place where they can share knowledge and encourage the development and implementation of best practice within the Biosecurity industry.
NZBI branches throughout the country hold local events during the year and come together annually during New Zealand Biosecurity Month to hold the National Education and Training Seminar (NETS). The NETS is held in a different location around New Zealand each year and allows our members the opportunity to share experiences, successes as well as lessons learnt. The seminar invites top national and international speakers from across the spectrum of Biosecurity. The NZBI also funds and creates opportunities for the professional development of our members.
Please take the time to make the most of the resources available on our website and find out more about the NZBI. If you are a member then our members section has up-to-date contact details and the latest editions of PROTECT magazine.
If making a positive contribution to protecting New Zealand's unique environment is important to you then I encourage you to contact a local branch rep and join the NZBI community.
President of the New Zealand Biosecurity Institute
