WHY DOES THE BAY OF PLENTY NEED BIOSECURITY SUPERHEROES?

It takes all of us to protect what we've got here in the Bay of Plenty.

We asked BOP locals and visitors to shoot a short video answering the question above for a chance to win a share of $3,000!

 

We received great entries from all of the categories, and thanks to our judges, Minister O'Connor (Ministry for Primary Industries), Fiona McTavish (BOP Regional Council), Michelle Dickenson (aka Nano Girl), and Hayden Henry (Kaitiaki, Ngai Tukairangi), we are pleased to announce the winners below.

Thank you to all of the Biosecurity Superheroes who entered the competition and are doing their part to protect the beautiful region we call home!
