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.

It is proposed that the symposium 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
