Working together to protect New Zealand

Welcome to Weedbusters

Weedbusters is about working together to stop weedy plants taking over New Zealand’s amazing natural areas - and you can help!

Weedy plants are one of the greatest threats to New Zealand’s parks, reserves, coasts, bush remnants, wetlands and alpine areas.  Many of these weeds are ornamental plants that have ‘jumped the fence’ from gardens and gone wild.

Check out what you can do to help stop the spread of these invasive plants - you can make a big difference!
