Summary of activities

Our work protects the natural environment from harmful new invasive species by advancing two objectives: OBJECTIVE 1: PREVENTION & EARLY ACTION This objective seeks to ensure that a ‘biosecurity system’ is in place by 2022 that reduces the risk to Australia’s natural environment. We use the following strategies to achieve this objective: PROVIDE COMPELLING INFORMATION TO THE BROADER PUBLIC 1.1 Develop case studies and stories about invasive ants, plant diseases, invasive species on offshore islands. 1.2 Help local communities understand the impact of invasive species and their role in bringing about change. 1.3 Track and publicise new incursions. PROMOTE AN EFFECTIVE BIOSECURITY SYSTEM AND REWARD SUCCESS 1.4 Seek the adoption of a biosecurity system that protects Australia from invasive ants, plant diseases, marine pests and other environmental threats. 1.5 Seek improved laws and compliance for the keeping of pets and weedy garden plants. 1.6 Encourage and reward success. WORK WITH PROCESSES AND ORGANISATIONS 1.7 Provide targeted input to government policy development. 1.8 Collaborate with non-environmental organisations. SUPPORT PRACTICAL ACTION 1.9 Promote the community’s role. 1.10 Initiate or support efforts to identify threats and their potential pathways. OBJECTIVE 2: ERADICATION, CONTAINMENT & CONTROL This objective seeks to eradicate invasive species from selected offshore islands and sites, contain emerging species and direct public and community control efforts to threatened sites. We use the following strategies to achieve this objective: FACILITATE ERADICATION 2.1 Facilitate the eradication of invasive species from offshore islands. 2.2 Encourage the eradication of recently introduced invasive species on the mainland such as yellow crazy ants and red imported fire ants. ADVOCATE FOR CONTAINMENT 2.3 Advocate for government-led strategies that contain feral deer and other emerging species. SUPPORT TARGETED CONTROL 2.4 Support community and government-led invasive species containment and targeted control 2.5 Promote adoption of a ‘general biosecurity obligation’ 2.6 Promote adoption of control practices advanced by leading experts. 2.7 Urge government funding for research to develop biological controls and innovative control methods.
