KiwiNet making a difference in the fruit fly fight
KiwiNet – the kiwifruit industry’s official team of selected people who champion biosecurity readiness and coordinate the deployment of kiwifruit industry resources into bioseucrity responses – has been heavily involved in the Auckland fruit fly response.
There have been more than 165 staff days so far contributed by KiwiNet members, who have used their skills and expertise to help with trapping, ground surveying, fruit collection, and public awareness activities.
Profiles of two team members have been published, sharing their experience working on the frontline – read all about Lori from OPAC and Sheryl from EastPack.
