How to get involved

As an important member of the community surrounding your botanic garden we would love to have you take part in the Botanic Gardens Biosecurity Network. We encourage you to:

  • stay informed about biosecurity in the gardens. Subscribe to our newsletter for a quarterly update on new articles and events added to the site. For more regular updates follow our Facebook page.
  • stop the spread of plant pests and diseases. There are simple biosecurity practices you can use when you grow, buy or sell plants, and when you travel between gardens.
  • keep watch for new pests and diseases as you walk around the gardens. If you see anything unusual please call the Exotic Plant Pest Hotline on 1800 084 881.
