Invasive Animals CRC Extension Research Program (2012–2017)

Programs and key outputs

The Invasive Animals CRC extension will be delivered through four programs:

1. Land Pests:

Products and Strategies to manage land pests impacting on agriculture, urban areas and biodiversity. The focus will be on developing a national incursions response system and strategic landscape scale approaches to rabbit (new strains of RHD virus) and wild dog control.

2. Land Pests (Commercial Products):

Developing a new rodenticide, a new pest bird toxin and fertility control agents for kangaroos and wild horses.

3. Inland Water Pests:

Products and Strategies to detect new pest fish incursions using new environmental DNA techniques, particularly tilapia, and complete the science to enable release of Australia’s first carp biocontrol agent – Koi herpesvirus (KHV).

4. Community Engagement:

Ensuring availability and adoption of new products and capacity to manage pests: by understanding and influencing policies and social drivers in pest animal control; encouraging cooperation: and overcoming economic and social barriers. This structure places increased focus on adoption related research, education and training.
