About the work of Biosecurity Queensland
Biosecurity Queensland brings together land protection, animal and plant biosecurity, environmental biosecurity, chemical use and animal welfare and keeping.
Regardless of the size of your enterprise or hobby farm, as a rural landholder you play a vital role in minimising biosecurity risks, and protecting our industries and communities from the negative impacts of pests, diseases and contaminants.
