Professional development and training for surveillance practitioners is essential for individuals, surveillance programs and the public good. These activities improve national abilities to do surveillance, capture the information and use the data effectively.
Improve the national plant health surveillance capability and capacity.
A surveillance protocol is a technical reference guide for conducting surveillance on a specific plant pest or group of plant pests.
A process has been developed to provide a nationally agreed design and analysis framework to guide the delivery of plant health surveillance.
Any unusual plant pest, disease or weed should be reported.
Reporting hotlines operate in both Australia and New Zealand (numbers shown below).
Pests can also be reported using apps, such as MyPestGuide™ for Australia, that allow you to submit a photo of the pest or symptoms.
Every report is taken seriously and handled confidentially. Management of calls varies in different areas, but to the same end.
