Submission to draft national incursion prevention and response strategy for potentially invasive animals 2017-2022

This submission comments on the consultation draft of the National Incursion Prevention and Response Strategy for Potentially Invasive Animals 2017-2022.

The submission highlights the need to prioritise prevention and early detection and expresses support for a response model based on risk and risk-based prioritisation. It also encourages the need for measures to protect our natural environment from invasive animal incursions not be dependent on quantitative or financial assessment benefits.

Broadly it seems that the strategy is developing in the right direction – focused on a science and risk approach to decisions however specific discussion of environmental biosecurity is a gap in this strategy. It is also clear that further resourcing will be required to support the strategy will be required.
