New Zealand Biosecurity Institute (NZBI)

I am a member of the New Zealand Biosecurity Institute which is and organisation made up of people interested in preserving and protecting the natural environment of New Zealand. We organise activities on a local and national basis and produce the quarterly Protect magazine.

Our aims are to:
  • Raise awareness of the Institute and biosecurity issues;
  • Encourage the development and application of best practice in biosecurity;
  • Connect people and organisations to share knowledge; and
  • Create opportunities for professional development of members.
NETS is the annual National Education and Training Seminar held by the NZBI. Each NETS is attended by people from all facets of the Biosecurity field and features workshops and presentations on many different aspects of invasive species management. The next NETS conference will be held in Blenheim 21st-23rd July 2010. The conference has the title “Know How, Can Do, Job Done!” and is open to anyone with an interest in the field.

You can join the NZBI for as little as $30 and receive discounted attendance at NETS, free quarterly Protect magazine and access to the regular meetings and field trips organised by your local branch.

Registrations are now open for NETS2010 and you can view and download the Registration Brochure here.

One day a man was driving down the road in a hot red convertible.
He was driving 15 mph when a rabbit that hopped in front of his car.
As the man swerved the rabbit swerved also and was run over.
The man got out of the car and started crying “OH-MY-GOD… OH-MY-GOD!!!!”
Just then a blonde drives up and asks him what’s wrong, when he tells her she says, “Oh I can fix that.”
She goes to her car, pulls out a can and sprays the rabbit with it.
It instantly comes alive and hops off, but every five feet it turns back to wave, before finally disappearing into the forest.
The guy is amazed and says, “How did you do that?”
The blonde just tosses him the can and drives off.
The can says “Hair Spray: Guaranteed to bring your hair back to life and create a permanent wave.”
