Animal and Plant Health Home

​​​​​​​​Australia is free from some of the world's major agricultural and aquatic pests and diseases, and is a world leader in animal welfare.​ This 'clean and green' status provides us with a major trading advantage and access to overseas markets - essential to the economy because Australia exports around 75 per cent of its agricultural products.

The Biosecurity Services Group protects our animal and plant health by placing a high priority on education and awareness to prevent pest and disease incursions, and en​​sures robust and tested response plans are in place should an outbreak occur.
