Invasive Animal CRC

For those of you who don't know them, the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre is funded by the Commonwealth Government and builds on the strong foundation provided by the Pest Animal Control CRC prior to 2004 http://www.invasiveanimals.com/

"The centre aims to counteract the impact of invasive animals through the development and application of new technologies and by integrating approaches across agencies and jurisdictions.  It is the first time that research, industry, environmental, commercial and government agencies will work together to create and apply solutions for invasive animal threats."

This week, IA CRC have been granted a further $19.7million of funding to continue their research operations into the future. 

The Invasive Animals CRC has also been running a photography competition in recent months for images of feral species that they will incorporate into their 2012 corporate calendar. I quite like the winning entry...
