Who we are
Biosecurity has traditionally been a domain of government, with the federal government taking responsibility for people and goods entering the country, and states and territories managing pest animals, weeds and pathogens within their borders.
Increasingly, it is recognised that effective biosecurity requires all Australians to take responsibility.
To help in that mission, the 8 organisations below (along with support from the state and federal governments) propose that Australia declares a national Decade of Biosecurity – as a chance to reimagine our biosecurity system, engage all Australians and enact more inclusive, ambitious and effective measures.
We invite all of you to join us in making the 2020s the national Decade of Biosecurity!

The aims for Biosecurity 2030 are based on the five-point plan launched at the 2019 Symposium and include:
- Setting 2020-2030 as the decade of biosecurity.
- Mobilising a 25-million strong biosecurity mass movement.
- Developing a national biosecurity strategy and sustainable investment plan.
- Designing an innovation-centred biosecurity system.
- Creating a formal national biosecurity partnership agreement between government, industry and the community.
