New Pest Calendar Coming Soon

The annual Port of Tauranga Biosecurity Excellence pest calendar is being refreshed as we speak and is expected to be out in time for the next high-risk season for some of our region's most unwanted pests.

Everyone has a role to play in preventing pests and diseases from getting into our region or helping to stop their spread if they do get here.

We're kaitiaki. We're guardians.  We're all responsible for protecting Tauranga Moana.
