One Health - Indigenous Community Animal Management

Dates: 23-25 September 2014
Venue: Darwin, DoubleTree Hilton

Join us in September 2014 at the 10th Anniversary AMRRIC Conference. We invite you to be a part of this highly anticipated event in the animal management sector and expand your network in the one health community.

Our conference is unique, being the only event specifically focussed on animal management in Indigenous communities and is expected to attract approximately 250 delegates from around Australia and the world. This event is a “must attend” event for all those involved in global indigenous companion animal and community health, policy and practice - including those working in community, all levels of government, the not for profit welfare, research, veterinary, and pet industry sectors. The conference is an excellent opportunity for delegates to engage and share information and walk away with new insights, strategies and practices relating to the health and welfare of Indigenous communities and the animals that are so important to their culture and social fabric.
