GETTING STARTED

Here are a few things you might like to think about to help you make your short video:

  • What do you love about the Bay of Plenty?
    It might be the environment (beaches, rivers, ocean, bush), the natural resources and wildlife (birds, fish, shellfish, fishing and hunting), or the industries (kiwifruit, avocados, farming).

 

  • What biosecurity threats could prevent you from enjoying the Bay of Plenty?
    EXAMPLE: We all love walking around or up Mauao - if a disease like Myrtle Rust were spread to the pōhutukawa trees on Mauao (via the wind, insects, birds, people, or machinery) the walking tracks would have to close to stop the spread of the disease and prevent these beautiful native trees from dying.

 

  • What can you do to protect what we've got here in the Bay of Plenty?
    There are lots of things we can do to be 'Biosecurity Superheroes' - it can be as easy as disinfecting your shoes before and after walking in the bush, or something more proactive like setting traps for predators like rats and stoats.
