Nominations now open for biosecurity awards
THE search has begun for Australia’s true biosecurity champions through the 2019 Australian Biosecurity Awards.
Head of biosecurity at the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, Lyn O’Connell, said the annual Biosecurity Awards are an important recognition of Australians making significant contributions to our worldleading biosecurity status.
“Our strict conditions protect our $60 billion agricultural industries, as well as our unique environment, native flora and fauna, our tourism industries and lifestyle,” she said.
“Biosecurity is a shared responsibility and we want to applaud the efforts of those supporting and promoting the systems that uphold it.”
Nominations are now open and close on Friday, November 9, 2018.
