Pest animal workshop series
Landholders are invited to attend a community workshop where we will outline a number of important pest animal programs and projects for the year ahead, highlighted by the Professional Wild Dog Controller Program and ‘Western Tracks’ collaring project. Landholders will also be asked to assist in mapping out 'hot spots' of wild dog activity in their area.
DroughtHub provides a one-stop online destination for information on a vast range of services and support available to primary producers, their families and communities to prepare for and manage drought conditions.
