Great opportunity for landholders in Buronga to upskill in pest animal management
16 March 2018
Western Local Land Services is offering landholders a great opportunity to upskill through a one-day 1080 Pindone and Canid Pest Ejector (CPE) training workshop in Buronga at the end of this month.
The workshop, which will be held at 32 Enterprise Way, Buronga (Western Local Land Services office) on Wednesday, 28 March, will offer landholders both theory and practical components of training which will assist in their overall understanding and ability to manage pest animals.
It will also give landholders the opportunity to gain important accreditation which is compulsory to purchase baits from Western Local Land Services and lasts for five years.
The workshop comes on the back of recent 1080 and CPE workshops in Bourke and Pooncarie and is in response to the strong interest shown by the landholders in the local area.
Western Local Land Services Biosecurity Officer, Lynda Holley is pleased to see landholders taking an active interest and hoped to see strong numbers at the event.
“It is important landholders have the most up-to-date training and information when it comes to pest animal management,” Ms Holley said.
“It was pleasing to have a good turnout at the Pooncarie workshop and we already have good numbers for the upcoming session at Buronga.
“At the conclusion of the workshop, we have allowed time for questions which will also give landholders the chance to update us on what they are experiencing on their properties.”
A cost of $44 applies for the 1080 Pindone training while a cost of $22 applies for the CPE training.
The workshop will commence at 10 am and conclude at 3 pm, with coffee, tea and water provided.
Landholders are asked to RSVP by Monday, 26 March to Ms Holley on 0427 200 820 or Biosecurity Support Officer, Lee Mannix on 0429 614 953.
