We all have a duty of care to take action or precautions against biodiversity threats. The ‘General Biosecurity Duty’ (GBD) is a legal obligation under the 2019 Biosecurity Act that comes into effect on the 31 March. By taking simple precautions such as cleaning equipment of dirt or seeds when we move between sensitive sites (such as farms, wilderness areas or waterways) or keeping an eye out for anything out of the ordinary after we bring hay, grain or stock onto our properties, we are all playing an important role in keeping our island free from pests, weeds and diseases.
