Biosecurity is the protection of the economy, environment and community from the negative impacts of pests and diseases, weeds and contaminants.

We can only successfully manage biosecurity when every person plays a part. The idea that biosecurity is a shared responsibility means we all need to do our bit to protect the economy, environment and community from biosecurity threats. It is a concept that is enshrined in NSW legislation and outlined in our NSW Biosecurity Strategy.

For more information on how biosecurity is managed in NSW, see Managing Biosecurity in NSW

Being biosecure means that you:

  • Take steps to prevent pests, diseases and weeds from entering NSW and spreading to new areas
  • Keep an eye out for pests, weeds and signs of disease
  • Report anything unusual to NSW DPI
  • Participate where you can when we are responding to incursions and biosecurity emergencies

Report a pest or disease

Help protect NSW's community, environment and economy by reporting suspect or unusual pests and diseases and other biosecurity concerns.
