NZIAHS Biosecurity Forum
– have we gone soft at the border?
Thursday 11th July 2013 9.00am – 4.00pm
Owen Glenn Building, University of Auckland
Biosecurity is vital to New Zealand. Preservation of our natural ecosystems, the future growth of our economy and our major primary biological exports are all threatened by ongoing incursions at our borders. Yet we also recognise the importance of tourism and without the ability to trade then the agriculture and horticulture industries don’t function. The contradiction is that being part of the global economy also means we are part of the global ecosystem, for better or worse.
• So does the increase in tourist numbers constitute a significant increase in incursion risk?
• Should we expect that no incursions occur?
• What is the current research on biosecurity focusing on?
• Can we play a part theto assist Ministry?
Join us as we debate these questions.
