Biosecurity Plans & Regulations
Biosecurity plans guide management decisions for preventing, detecting, and rapidly responding to the introduction of invasive alien species. Site location, land ownership, likely invasive species' introduction pathways and native species at risk will influence recommendations in the plan, however overarching biosecurity principles are often common between regions. This library contains biosecurity plans for sites around the world and can assist managers in writing or updating plans for their own region .
