Big biosecurity hunt prizes up for grabs

19 January 2023

If you haven’t been out adventuring already, don’t forget the Great Tauranga Moana Biosecurity Hunt is back! Have you got what it takes to hunt down the most invasive insects, animals, weeds, and diseases to protect our largest growing region?

The popular virtual hunts are available at Mount Maunganui, the Tauranga waterfront, and Papamoa surf club. Use your wits, knowledge, and orienteering skills to find the 'locations' of several pesky creatures on each hunt, answer quiz questions, and 'report' them to biosecurity experts.

The bug hunts run through to Monday 30 January, so you’ve still got time to get out there. Full entry and prize details available here.
