First of DAWE’s 2021 biosecurity webinars open for registration

Registrations have opened for the 2021 Environmental Biosecurity Webinar Series – Knock Knock, Who’s there? Drawing attention to our most unwanted visitors.

The seven monthly webinars and discussions, curated by the federal Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE), will focus on the recently released National Priority List of Exotic Environmental Pests, Weeds and Diseases and explore the list’s purpose, its development, and how it will help manage biosecurity risks.

Each webinar will be 90 minutes in duration, including three speakers and 30 minutes of facilitated discussion.

The first webinar Biosecurity. A weakness in one is a vulnerability to all (on 15 April) will introduce the series and highlight the importance of managing biosecurity risks across the spectrum of human, agricultural, environmental and marine health.

Three experts, Dr Andy Sheppard (CSIRO), Dr Katie Woolaston (QUT) and Professor Chad Hewitt (Murdoch) will provide their latest insights on biosecurity and the transdisciplinary approach to one health.
