Blackwood Biosecurity New Executive Officer

Published on Wednesday, 29 December 2021 at 1:00:00 PM


Blackwood Biosecurity Inc. (BBI) is an incorporated not-for-profit group, operating in the Shires of Boyup Brook, Bridgetown-Greenbushes, West Arthur and the southern portion of Donnybrook-Balingup. This is not a Shire delivered program.  The group supports landholders to meet their biosecurity responsibilities such as managing widespread and established declared pests.

Last month, Tracy Zemunik who is based in Bridgetown was appointed as the new Executive Officer.  Tracyk is looking forward to leading BBI with a fresh perspective focusing on collaboration, education, advocacy and best practice and recently advised “I am currently working with our Management Committee for the formation of a new team bringing together the right experience and local knowledge for our area to provide true value across our communities.  Meaningful engagement with our stakeholders is key to our mission to really understand pest management priorities, concerns and challenges and to advocate for those landholders where extra support is needed.

Per Margaret Morton, BBI Management Committee Chair stated that “Tracy brings tremendous strategic planning and financial management expertise to our group.  The BBI management committee is excited to have her on board and look forward to working with her as she assembles and directs a new team that will provide great benefit to our ratepayers in minimising the impact of declared pests in our area.”  

Tracy will strive to best serve ratepayers while also ensuring BBI’s transparency and accountability. “I love our unique and diverse area and feel that each of us has an important role to play in protecting our land.  We all know that that pests and weeds do not stop at fences or shire boundaries, and to achieve region-wide impacts we must use our collective knowledge and resources as best we can.”
