Report a biosecurity threat

Unwanted seeds in the post

Unsolicited seed packets have been sent to Northern Territory (NT) properties.

Imported seeds are a significant biosecurity risk.

If you receive unwanted seeds in the post, you must report it.

Biosecurity protects the Northern Territory (NT) from serious damage by pests, diseases and weeds.

Important industries in the NT such as cattle, seafood, horticulture and tourism are all vulnerable to biosecurity threats.

Report a threat

You can play an important role to manage biosecurity threats in the NT by reporting anything suspicious to the biosecurity hotline on 1800 084 881.

If you see something that could have entered Australia with imported goods, and you think it may be a biosecurity concern, report it.

If you see unusual pests, including invasive animals and weeds, report it.
