Knock Knock. Who’s there?

Drawing attention to our most unwanted visitors

Thank you for visiting our 2021 environmental biosecurity webinar series Have Your Say page. We will update this page with recordings, slides, links and information related to each webinar as they happen.

Focus

Our webinar series focus this year is the National Priority List of Exotic Environmental Pests, Weeds and Diseases. It’s also known as the Exotic Environmental Pest List (EEPL).

Over a series of 7 monthly webinars, we will share:

  • why environmental biosecurity matters
  • how the EEPL was developed
  • how the risks identified could affect our environment, public spaces, heritage and way of life.

It is important to note that the EEPL is focused on exotic (not established) pests, weeds and diseases that affect Australia's environment and amenity. It complements existing pest lists and strategies in biosecurity. Other exotic pest lists include: the top 42 National Priority Plant Pests, the Australian Priority Marine Pest List and the National list of notifiable animal diseases.

For established pests there is the Australian Pest Animal Strategy, the Australian Weeds Strategy and the Weeds of National Significance.

How to register

We host each webinar on Microsoft Teams. We email registered participants a link with joining information.
