Kia ora koutou
We will likely look back on 2020-21 as a turning point in terms of recognising our opportunities for partnership with Iwi/Māori. Our new Annual Report (read here)contains stories on people involved, initiatives underway or planned as we travel along the path of integrating Te Ao Māori into our research and outcomes.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19 we have been productive in engaging with the biosecurity community here and internationally; publishing our work; mentoring and sharing our knowledge with students; and, importantly, in implementing our research.
We hope you enjoy reading about how B3 is helping enhance Aotearoa New Zealand’s biosecurity system, and ultimately protecting our valued native and productive plants.
