Biosecurity is a shared responsibility. We all have a part to play to protect Australia’s economy, environment, industries and communities from biosecurity threats.
Our actions can create or mitigate risks. From travelling and ordering goods from overseas, to identifying and reporting exotic pests and diseases within Australia, this all impacts our biosecurity system.
Biosecurity protects our home and our way of life.
