    Building a successful animal management program from the ground up is challenging at the best of times but throw in the mix a low socio-economic area, poor trust in AMOs, limited resources, and a long history of high enforcement. Understanding the needs of a community, difficulties in an area as well as taking a multi-agency approach to a pilot animal management program has lead to amazing success for a regional Local Government in Australia. Gaining the trust of the community became the key to creating a successful working relationship.

    Come join Tina Martin and Ann-Marie Plasto to find out about how you could build a holistic approach to animal management programs in low socio-areas with great results.


    What you’ll learn:

    • Summary of current animal management pilot program in a regional Australian town.
    • Challenges faced and how they were overcome within the program.
    • Why a multi-agency approach to an animal management program leads to successful outcomes for everyone involved
