Help protect us from pests

Marlborough is always facing new biosecurity threats - marine pests in our coastal waters, plant threats overtaking our pastoral grasses or pest plants getting a hold in the wild.

The public has a role to play in protecting Marlborough's primary industries and natural environment, be it keeping a clean boat, taking care with machinery and footwear, or carefully selecting plants for the garden.

  • Report new or suspicious organisms to the Ministry for Primary Industries Pest & Exotic Diseased Hotline 0800 80 99 66
  • Regional biosecurity issues; contact Council’s Biosecurity Team Ph: 03 520 7400 or email:
