Environmental Biosecurity: Best Practice

New types of foreign pests and weeds are getting into Australia every year. More than 50 invaders never seen before in Australia and harmful to the environment have been detected since 2000.

Each new infestation that reaches our shores increases the cost of looking after the country’s bushlands, seas and wildlife.

Every failure to eradicate an infestation risks environmental problems of epidemic proportions.

That is why we have produced a best-practice environmental guide for Australian policy makers. It shows how we can create a biosecurity system that’s properly aimed at delivering real environmental protection on behalf of all Australia

For many years Australia’s quarantine and biosecurity systems have been focused on protecting agriculture, trade and human health. But the impacts of invasive species on our natural environment can no longer be ignored.

Our environment, natural resources, native wildlife and wildflowers are what make Australia unique. Protecting these is in the public interest.
