Help make 2021-30 the decade of biosecurity.

Our initiatives

Join us at the 2nd Australian Biosecurity Symposium!

Animal Health Australia, the Invasive Species Council, the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions and Plant Health Australia are excited to host the 2nd Australian Biosecurity Symposium on 3-5 May 2022 on the Gold Coast, QLD.

The Symposium will once again focus on biosecurity prevention and provide the opportunity to share research and innovation, explore outside-of-the-box thinking and exchange knowledge and ideas across the biosecurity collective – agriculture (animals and plants), pest animals, weeds, wildlife, aquatics, humans and the environment.

This year’s theme is ‘a decade of biosecurity: turning a moment into a movement.’

We hope you’ll be a part of it!

Australian Biosecurity Symposium 2019

The inaugural Australian Biosecurity Symposium was held 12-13 June on the Gold Coast as a way of bringing the biosecurity collective together.

Australia’s biosecurity system faces unprecedented pressure. To address this pressure, strong leadership and innovation is essential.

Our symposiums provide the ideal platform to explore how to transform Australia’s biosecurity systems to better protect our economy, environment and way of life.

The symposiums will bring an unprecedented opportunity to influence the direction of Australia’s future biosecurity system, network, develop new concepts, share and test ideas, build new partnerships and engage in challenging discussions that stimulate debate and energy.
