Biosecurity Conference

The National Education and Training Seminar (NETS) conference, NETS2011 Tomorrow's Pest today, is to be held 6th - 8th July 2011, at the Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna Auckland.

NETS is the annual conference of the New Zealand Biosecurity Institiute (NZBI). If you are interested in biosecurity (the protection of New Zealand environments from invasive animals, plants and diseases) or the biodiversity (protection of the diversity of native New Zealand flora and fauna) of the country then come along to learn about the threats and what organisations around the country are doing to protect and prevent pests.

A draft programme is available here and information on pricing and accommodation can be found here.

Online registration to NETS2011 is now open and all members and non-members are welcome to join us for a fun packed and informative three days.
It would be great to see you there.

Three animal pest guys and three pest plant people are going to NETS by train. They meet at the station. The pest plant guys say "With things tight we can't afford three tickets but we have a plan to buy only one."

The animal pesties watch as the three plant pesties buy one ticket and then get on the train and squeeze into one restroom. When the conductor knocks on the door and says "Ticket please" the ticket is slipped under the door.

Thinking this was a smart way to save hard to find money the animal pesties decide to do they same thing on the return journey. But they notice the plant pesties don't buy any tickets!

On the train the animal pesties are squeezed in the restroom when a plant pestie knocks on the door and says "Ticket please."
