Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Eastern Courier

East Auckland is being recognised for its efforts in protecting the environment from pests and disease.

The government has named Howick schools and the Howick Ward as finalists in the 2021 Biosecurity Awards.

Howick Schools Moth Plant Competition saw students collect 90,000 moth plant pods and seedlings to improve biosecurity outcomes.

Pest Free Howick Ward saw teams work with the community to catch pests and plant around 40,000 native plants.

Auckland Airport has also been nominated for creating a biosecurity culture and team to strengthen border biosecurity.

Winners will be announced at a Wellington dinner in February 2022.
