Weedbusters means action - taking part in weed issues are essential if we are to limit the spread and establishment of weeds. Our Vision for Weedbusters New Zealanders are aware of and taking action to reduce the impact of weeds on the environment, economy and human health. Our Goals for Weedbusters Ensure that the New Zealand population is aware of the threat of weedsIncrease the number of people participating in managing the weed problemHelp all agencies involved in weeds work to share resources and provide clear and consistent messagesSecure ongoing funding for the Weedbusters programme.
