The Botanic Gardens Biosecurity Network was established in 2019 to bring together botanic garden staff, friends, guides, and volunteers to protect botanic gardens from plant pests and diseases. The website provides practical information and advice to staff of botanic gardens, community interest groups and members of the public to develop awareness, knowledge and skills to contribute to general biosecurity surveillance activities.
Through building this capacity the network aims to contribute to Australia’s national plant health surveillance system and to post-border, plant pest preparedness, early detection and response capability.
