Why to get involved

Lots of excellent ideas and feedback for the future management of kauri dieback disease were gathered in the first consultation round.  It's on the right track and these ideas are now reflected in the refreshed strategy and the National Pest Management Plan.  In these meetings they'd also like you to share your thoughts on ideas for the management agency (the organisation) that will implement the plan.

 

How to get involved

The second round of consultation is open from 20 August to 12 September 2018. If you can’t make a public meeting, or even if you do, you can still make a submission. The information they want your feedback on is available now on our website.

 

For more information about the consultations this year and to download a poster promoting them that you can share, visit www.kauridieback.co.nz/consultation. You can also email us at KauriConsultation@mpi.govt.nz if you have any questions.

Myrtle Rust Resources
Updated: 22 January 2018

An increasing number of myrtle rust cases are being reported in Auckland and around the North Island, which have the potential to have significant impacts on our amenity trees, the way we work, and what our landscape may look like in decades to come.
MPI have shared a selection of flyers with NZ Arb which they hope members will be able to distribute through our collectives networks, helping to track and manage the spread of the disease. 
 
In particular, they would like to encourage the download and use of the App that has been designed for this to help track the progress of the disease.

Auckland Fruit Fly 2015

Written by NZ Arb on March 17th, 2015.      6 comments


This information is for transporters, food businesses and fruit and vegetable exporters.

In February 2015 a localised population of Queensland fruit fly was detected in the Grey Lynn area of Auckland. If this fly were to establish here, it would have serious consequences for New Zealand’s horticultural industry.
 
MPI is taking urgent action to eradicate this Auckland fruit fly population and is confident of success given the resources and expertise at its disposal. This has the support of our response partners (AsureQuality and Auckland Council) and Government Industry Agreement partners KVH and PipfruitNZ.
 
Controls are in place in the Grey Lynn area for restricting the movement of the following risk goods out of and through the area:
 
  • All whole fresh fruit and vegetables other than leafy vegetables and root vegetables;
  • Soil and planting medium attached to, or in the vicinity of fruit bearing trees;
  • Packaging materials associated with fruit and vegetables as above
Go to our interactive map to see if you work in or transit this controlled area:
Queensland fruit fly - Interactive controlled area map (offsite link to mpi-bs.cloud.eaglegis.co.nz) 
 
If you are working with any of these risk goods in the controlled area you will need to dispose of your restricted waste in the bins provided by MPI. Do not move restricted goods outside the Controlled Area. This is to ensure that fruit flies are not spread outside of the area.
 
Should you wish to continue moving risk goods outside of the controlled area for your business, you will require a MPI movement permit. You will need to apply for a permit by email to MCPermitting@asurequality.com.
 
Further specifics on these requirements have been attached:
 
  • Controlled Area Notice
  • Permitting
  • Compensation
  • Host material
  • Transit in the Controlled Area
Please refer to the document attached for information on movement controls. Further information can also be found by calling 0800 80 99 66 number and selecting option 1 for removal of host material out of the controlled area.
 
  • If you plan to work in the controlled area, please contact us by email at AFF2015Liaison@mpi.govt.nz.  Or phone 0800 80 99 66.
  • Please refer to our website for up to date information about the response and operations.
If you see Queensland fruit fly, please call our 0800 80 99 66 hotline.
