Stronger Biosecurity Measures to Manage Stink Bug Risks (Aug 28, 2018)
Australian Government. Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
Australia has implemented stronger offshore biosecurity measures for the upcoming brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) season, to manage risks associated with this significant cargo pest. BMSB emerged as a biosecurity threat for Australia in 2014. They are a threat to a large range of plant species, including fruit, vegetables and ornamental plants. If BMSB was to arrive in Australia, it could significantly impact on the nation's plant health and potentially impact on trade. For more information, visit Seasonal Measures for BMSB.

New Office of Environmental Biosecurity Will Protect Australia's Borders (Jun 29, 2018)
Australian Invasive Species Council.
Today's announcement by federal agriculture minister David Littleproud to establish an office of environmental biosecurity will better prepare Australia to prevent and respond to new harmful pest, weed and disease invasions. The decision was announced today as part of a $138 million boost in investment for national biosecurity, including $7.6 million over five years to establish the office, headed by an Environmental Biosecurity Protection Officer, within the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.

Naming and Shaming Australia's Most Unwanted Pests (Sep 19, 2016)
Australian Government. Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
​Crippled plant industries, trade suspensions and a devastated environment—Australia's Top 40 National Priority Plant Pests have damaging potential, from vine-attacking bacteria to a giant snail. The Top 40 pests were recently endorsed by Plant Health Committee, Australia's top committee for plant biosecurity. They were identified through a national expert elicitation process, which considered the economic, social and environment threats the pests posed to Australia. For more information see Australia's National Priority Plant Pests.

Review of the Australian Pest Animal Strategy and the Australian Weeds Strategy
Australian Government. Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, on behalf of the Invasive Plants and Animals Committee, conducted a public consultation process on the Australian Pest Animal Strategy and Australian Weeds Strategy for 2017 to 2027, which concluded with the endorsement of both strategies by the National Biosecurity Committee in June 2017. These strategies provide a national framework for addressing pest animals and weeds, while maintaining the profitability and sustainability of Australia’s primary industries and reducing the impact of pest animals and weeds on the environment.
