Facilitating the strategic management of wild dogs throughout Australia

Lead researcher: Greg Mifsud, National Wild Dog Facilitator, Invasive Animals CRC, greg.mifsud@invasiveanimals.com

The national wild dog management project has been extremely successful in delivering best practice wild dog management information to stakeholders throughout the country. This was only possible due to the collaboration between industry, state government and natural resource groups. Over the course of the first five years of the project a total of 126 field days, and planning workshops were conducted across the country. Attendance at these field days varied over the course of the project depending on the region and awareness of the wild dog issue. Despite this however a total of 4,170 stakeholders were exposed to talks and planning meetings at these events but this blows out to nearly 5,000 individuals if the IACRC Pest Smart Road Show events are taken into account.
