Connected 2011 Level 3: ‘What is Biosecurity’
Ministry of Education NZ
This article introduces the concept of biosecurity and explains how, as a group of isolated islands, New Zealand developed a unique range of ecosystems.

Therefore, our borders are constantly monitored by biosecurity agencies to protect our environment, agriculture, and our health.
