Help make 2021-30 the decade of biosecurity.


Join us at the 2nd Australian Biosecurity Symposium!

3-5 May 2022 • Gold Coast 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 2030 Workshop

4-5 November 2020

In November 2020 the Biosecurity Collective welcomed delegates to the virtual Australian Biosecurity 2030 Workshop. The Workshop featured delegates from across the biosecurity collective – agriculture (animals and plants), humans, weeds, animal pests, wildlife, aquatics, and the environment.

Over two days of discussions, the Workshop focused on how to mobilise a 25-million strong biosecurity mass movement, a key element of the five-point plan launched at the 2019 Symposium to future-proof Australia’s biosecurity.
