Invasive Animal Cooperative Research Centre

Posted by Bestprac on Feb 02 2012

The Invasive Animal Cooperative Research Centre: Australia’s largest integrated invasive animal research program.

The Invasive Animals CRC creates new technologies and integrated strategies to reduce the impact of invasive animals on Australia’s economy, environment, and people. They concentrate on developing smarter tools to prevent and detect new invasions, advanced and tactical tools to strengthen integrated management strategies of carp and other pest fish, and new tools and integrated management strategies for major pests including foxes, wild dogs, feral pigs, rats and mice, cane toads, feral cats and rabbits.

Operating your business in a pastoral environment means you are often dealing with some of these pests. The Invasive Animal CRC publishes a newsletter with information about their latest research and innovations. To subscribe, follow this link.
