AMRRIC returns to Maningrida

07 September 2018

Last week, Animal Management in Rural & Remote Indigenous Communities (AMRRIC) staff Jan and Courtney had the pleasure of working with staff from the Djelk Rangers and West Arnhem Regional Council (WARC) to undertake a companion animal census at Maningrida and three surrounding outstations. AMRRIC captures census data to help us identify animal management priorities, and work with local stakeholders to develop and implement responsive animal management programs. Jonah, Dioni, Richiksha and Joyce from the rangers as well as Fonzie from WARC were such fun to work with, and were efficient and skilled in capturing data using AMRRIC’s custom App. 
It makes AMRICC happy be training wonderful community members, and they’re excited to be assisting with animal management in the region. Big thanks to the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources Northern Australia Quarantine Strategy, Djelk Rangers and WARC for their support of this activity.
