Biosecurity excellence in port communities

Biosecurity outcome

  • A “best practice” template for measuring baseline biosecurity performance in a particular area (e.g. port and surrounds) and monitoring of change
  • Better ways to understand, measure and influence biosecurity awareness in port communities, including general surveillance and social licence to operate
  • With House of Science, improved understanding and awareness of biosecurity in school children, who influence their families and ultimately become biosecurity aware citizens and scientists of the future
  • Improved understanding of the constraints and opportunities for better targeting of pathway interventions, surveillance and eradication practices in and around port environments

Science outcome

  • New social science tools for measuring and maximising impacts of promotional activities on public awareness and support for local biosecurity activities
  • New knowledge, tools and techniques for managing biosecurity, biodiversity and ecology in industrial areas
