Better Border Biosecurity (B3) is a multi-partner, cooperative science collaboration that researches ways to reduce the entry and establishment of new plant pests and diseases in New Zealand.

As a geographically isolated archipelago, Aotearoa, New Zealand is a country free from many pests and diseases that damage productive and natural ecosystems, or endanger human and animal health.  The B3 research collaboration works to maintain this advantage by using research and it’s uptake to improve border biosecurity across five theme areas.
