English broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough has touched down in New Zealand, but not before a close encounter with those who keep our boarders safe.

The Ministry for Primary Industries tweeted a photo of the BBC veteran with MPI officers and detector dogs.

The dogs, however, seem less enthused with the 90-year-old than the officers did.

"And now, out of it's natural habitat, we see the lesser-spotted Sir David Attenborough," the caption read.

Sir David's A Quest for Life show is on at Auckland's Civic Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday.

A second show was announced after the first sold out soon after tickets were released.
