AMRRIC recognises that ethical, culturally sensitive research can result in significant and tangible benefits for both Indigenous communities and their companion animals. Additionally, AMRRIC recognises the benefits of the involvement of Indigenous people as full partners in research projects. Such collaboration builds capacity both within communities and of Indigenous researchers, institutions and organisations, and is a model that AMRRIC strongly supports.
In its work, AMRRIC seeks to base its policies and strategies on factual information and ethical research findings. AMRRIC is therefore interested in engaging with Indigenous communities and researchers to assist in the development and implementation of projects that align with AMRRIC’s strategy and objectives. As Australia’s only independent organisation focusing on all areas of companion animal management in rural and remote Indigenous communities, AMRRIC is in a unique position to facilitate effective and appropriate research collaborations.
