The National Priority List of Exotic Environmental Pests, Weeds and Diseases was released today which delivers on a recommendation of the 2017 review of Australia’s biosecurity system.
Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management David Littleproud, and Minister for the Environment, Sussan Ley said the list will be used to prioritise national actions to help prevent the entry, establishment and spread of exotic pests, weeds, and diseases.
“They pose a high risk to our environment and public spaces. Australia’s biosecurity system is there to protect the great outdoors and we are doing so to protect our way of life,” Minister Littleproud said.
