New hub of biosecurity information for botanic gardens launched


The Botanic Gardens Biosecurity Network, a community of practice bringing together botanic gardens staff, friends and volunteers, and biosecurity experts, has recently launched their website.

The aim of the Network is to build biosecurity knowledge and capacity to protect botanic gardens from plant pests and diseases. Through this they hope to empower those in the botanic gardens to help spread knowledge about biosecurity, through communications and surveillance activities.

The Network will publish practical information and advice on the website for staff of botanic gardens, community interest groups and members of the public to develop their knowledge and skills so they can contribute to general biosecurity surveillance activities. This information will enable people to look out for and protect their botanic and home gardens from exotic plant pests and diseases.
