Our annual Dieback Information Group conference will be held on the 30th and 31st August! Don’t miss out and make sure to save the date in your calendars! DIG brings together the latest in scientific knowledge, best land management practices and industry innovation.

This conference is an excellent opportunity for people from a wide range of sectors working in the biosecurity space to come together and share new science, tools, communication strategies and experiences in the management of Phytophthora Dieback and other closely related biosecurity concerns.

This year’s theme is Biosecurity: It’s Up to You! Through the use of this theme, we will explore the shared nature of our environmental biosecurity system, particularly in WA where vast areas and relatively low population density means that we all need to be aware of potential new threats to our environment and how to report them.

The first of the two days (August 30th) is the conference at The Hub – Technology Park, featuring guest speakers:

David Collard
Jasmine Leighton – Conservation and Wildlife Graduate ECU
Shanika Harshani – PhD Candidate Murdoch University
Anne Sawyer – The University of Queensland
Michael Wysong – South Coast NRM
Annelise Wiebkin – Invasive Species Unit – Biosecurity SA
Paco Tovar
Meredith Spencer
Dominic Castledine – DPIRD
Tom Mansfield – PhD Candidate Murdoch University
Cecilia Crowe – Murdoch University
Joe Grehan – Terratree

The second day (August 31st) a field trip at Hanson Gaskell Sand Operations, Ellenbrook.
