Help make 2021-30 the decade of biosecurity.

Communications and Engagement

We want to create a culture change so that everyone understands why biosecurity it is vital to our way of life.

We hope that over the course of the next decade acting in the best interest of Biosecurity will become as natural as putting on a seatbelt  

Whether managing a property, moving goods or travelling around the country and beyond, everybody should play a part. Industries, businesses and the community can work to support government efforts.

Everyone will understand why their participation is important, and how their efforts will make a difference.  People will be energised with a sense of purpose aligned with common goals. 

We want to mobilise a 25-million strong biosecurity mass movement.

Stay tuned for how you can get involved and our early catalyst projects.

Biosecurity Symposium 2019

Australia’s national biosecurity system faces a perfect storm with trade and tourism volumes, changing risk pathways and thousands of invasive species already in the country but yet to establish.

Business as usual or incremental improvements is not an option – transformational change is needed within a decade. This panel, recorded at the 2019 Australian Biosecurity Symposium, discusses what Australia needs to do to meet this challenge. Failure is not an option.

Moderated by Robbie Sefton, Managing Director, Seftons, panellists include:

  • Kathleen Plowman, the CEO of Animal Health Australia.
  • Andreas Glanznig, the CEO of the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions.
  • Andrew Cox, the CEO of Invasive Species Council.
  • Matt Koval, Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment.
  • Roger Smith, Head of Biosecurity for the New Zealand Government Ministry of Primary Industries (at the time of recording).
