In the absence of good New Zealand data this Australian survey (1200 respondents) shows just how hard it is to bring about sustainable behaviour change to our biosecurity practices. The Aussies have been going at it much longer than us and yet their most practiced biosecurity measure – controlling weeds – was only reported by 30% of respondents. In our opinion, we’re going to have to find new ways to engage our landowners in this critical area because what we’ve done, and what we’re doing is unlikely to be working. Take a look at the full survey results on the Animal Health Australia website.
