Are you aware of, or require an update of the priority Emergency Animal Diseases (EAD) that threaten Australia’s livestock industry, and why northern Australia is one of the biggest risk pathways for a disease incursion?

Industry preparedness should be at the forefront for all stakeholders given the risks. In recognition of this, a new $4.33 million biosecurity boost for northern Australia has recently been announced – the Northern Australia Coordination Network (NACN).

In this webinar, join veterinarian and Queensland NACN coordinator Ben Rhodes (Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries) when he discusses:

1. The Northern Australia Coordination Network – our purpose and activities to increase northern Australia’s capacity and capability for EAD preparedness.

2. What are Australia’s priority EADs? – How to detect and report them.

3. The importance of biosecurity property planning.
