Chatham Islands Border Biosecurity “NO PEST PLEASE”

SPS Biota supports the Chatham Islands Council (CIC), and Environment Canterbury with the Chatham Islands border biosecurity (operating under the Biosecurity Act and CIC Pest Management Plan).

Visit CIC website:

The goal of the border biosecurity programme is to maintain the pest free status of the Chatham Islands and facilitate the safe movement of people, freight, and equipment.

Anything shipped or transported could provide a pathway for pests (such as weed species, insects, marine pests & diseases) to arrive on the Chatham Islands. In fact, some high-risk pathways like soil are prohibited.
