Help improve ACT's biosecurity

Help improve ACT's biosecurity

Have your say on ACT Government plans for improving how biosecurity is managed so the Territory can better respond to threats from invasive pests and diseases.

Pests, diseases and other biosecurity threats such as Foot and Mouth Disease and Varroa Mite directly threaten our environment and agriculture industry.

The Government is proposing new legislation to help us hit the ground running to identify and stop any new pest or disease incursions and to better manage current biosecurity matters such as invasive weeds and European wasps.

The community is invited to comment on a proposed framework for the new biosecurity legislation, which will form the basis of a new Biosecurity Bill to be introduced to the Legislative Assembly in 2019.

Comment on the ACT Government’s YourSay website until 10 August 2018.
