New biosecurity reporting tool launched
From Forest Health News 307, April 2022
Biosecurity New Zealand has released a new web tool for the reporting of suspected exotic pests and diseases. The tool guides users through the reporting process, allowing users to submit photos as well as the location and other pertinent information. The investigation and science teams receiving the reports are aiming to respond to the submitter within 24 hours, similar to the current phone hotline process. The tool supplements but does not replace the current 0800 hotline reporting system. For biosecurity emergencies the 0800hotline should still be used.
The new reporting tool can be found at
The phone hotline is 0800 80 99 66
