The big bug hunt is back

08 December 2022

Calling all adventurers! Have you got what it takes to hunt down the 'Most Wanted' invasive insects and animals and protect our largest growing region, the Bay of Plenty?

The Tauranga Moana Biosecurity Capital initiative is once again running the popular virtual hunts, this time 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. All you need is your smartphone (and the free Actionbound app) and your feet! There are great prizes up for grabs, all supporting local Bay of Plenty businesses and outdoor experiences.

The big bug hunts run from Boxing Day through to Monday 30 January 2023.

Full entry and prize details available here.
