Comprehensive and Continuous Biosecurity

Establish biosecurity protocols to allow rapid response to evolving pest species, avoid new species establishing and manage the impact of existing pests.


Comprehensive and continuous biosecurity measures are required to quickly identify new potential pests and conduct control measures before they become a major problem. Ongoing awareness and cooperative management programs across tenures, involving private landholders, government and industry, ensures the impacts of established pests are minimised (eg. cats, dogs, pigs, weeds and diseases).


Conduct community education to raise awareness of invasive species, including those that are readily available for purchase.
Prohibit the sale and promotion of pest species eg. through the aquarium trade (eg. frogbit), nurseries and agriculture (some invasive pasture species).
Use the learnings and momentum from pest ant control programs and apply to new biosecurity risks.
