Heather to speak at DEFRA Dog Population Management Conference

We are delighted to announce that Heather Bacon, the Outreach Veterinary Manager for the JMICAWE will be speaking at the 1st International Conference on Dog Population Management 2012, September 4-8, 2012.

Heather will be presenting a case study in Session 15 on ‘Dog Management issues and the meat industry’.

The main objective of the conference is to bring the public sector together with ecologists, economists and specialists in animal welfare, animal health and education.
Specific aims are:
  • To facilitate discussions and sharing of information on DPM among stakeholders;
  • To promote awareness of novel technologies, such as immune-contraception, vaccine delivery systems and software for DPM;
  • To encourage inter-sectoral collaboration, innovation and policy development, particularly in the context of rabies control
  • To provide evidence-based information for effective, humane DPM;
  • To promote animal and human health and wellbeing by reducing the incidence of zoonoses and the environmental impacts associated with dog population control.
