National Zoo Biosecurity Manual (March 2011)
The National Zoo Biosecurity Manual (NZBM) was produced as a cooperative initiative between the Zoo and Aquarium Association, the Australian Wildlife Health Network, the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry and the Australian Zoo Industry.
Guidelines (numbered sequentially for each section) outline the recommended practices to achieve best practice zoo biosecurity outcomes. The Manual outlines both basic guidelines and higher level guidelines for all zoos.
A biosecurity self audit checklist for ongoing assessment and improvement is available, in electronic format, as a supplement to this Manual.
