NSW Vertebrate Pest Management Symposium
Up to 200 delegates are expected to attend, from throughout NSW and interstate.
With many changes, developments and new tactics always emerging, the NSW Vertebrate Pest Management Symposium is the perfect opportunity to bring together people involved in pest animal management, research and policy to discuss what is happening in pest management in New South Wales, and how we should move forward. This is a practitioner driven forum, bringing together government and non-government pest practitioners to participate in a range of pest related talks and discussions.
The Symposium is held every two years, and in 2021 will address the following themes:
- New technology
- Community engagement and behaviour change
- Incursion detection and management
- Established pests – impacts and management
- Peri-urban pest management
- Case studies of real-world experiences
