Recognised Biosecurity Groups (RBGs) are community-based biosecurity groups that help landholders manage declared pests on their properties. 

Every year RBGs develop an operational plan that details their activities for the coming year. Activities are based on pests that are the biggest problem in their area, based on feedback and suggestions from the community, to make sure they reflect community need. See below for a summary of your RBG's priorities and activities.

Each RBG operates across several local government areas, and combined, cover most of the geography of the State.
