Biosecurity news - Your stories. Your work.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been the traditional custodians of this continent for over 65,000 years. Indigenous rangers are still caring for Country by monitoring what is happening to the plants, animals and oceans around us. Their work helps protect these priceless assets, maintains and builds cultural heritage, functioning ecosystems, prosperous agricultural industries and Australia’s enviable biosecurity status. In short, they work to support all Australians – the country, culture and our agricultural assets.
Indigenous rangers play a key role in Australia’s ability to maintain an early detection system for exotic pests and diseases across northern Australia. This newsletter is about acknowledging this important work and sharing these stories so that everyone has a chance to see the critical role rangers play in helping to keep out weeds, plant and animal pests and diseases - so that we can keep Country safe for future generations.
