Landholders will be provided with information highlighting feral animal research at the upcoming 'Collared' webinar hosted by GLENRAC.

At the online information session two key researchers on feral animals in the region will inform landholders with the latest information.

"This event will be held online using Zoom, which is a really easy platform for anyone to register and access," said GLENRAC Project Manager, Jennie Coldham.

Dr Guy Ballard and Darren Marshall will update landholders on research surrounding wild dogs and feral pigs, plus a new program on feral cats.

Dr Guy Ballard has worked on wild dog and other feral animal research for a number of years.

"I am a field ecologist who specialises in working with wildlife and people to achieve practical outcomes from science-based wildlife management programs," said Dr Ballard.

"I take a 'hands-on' approach to research, preferring to work in the field whenever possible."

Darren Marshall from Glen Innes has worked for a number of years in pest animal management and research based in southern QLD.

His recent projects have seen him working on research on the distribution and movement of feral pigs in the landscape, including around the Northern Tablelands.

The free webinar 'Collared' will be held Tuesday, September 8 from 7pm to 8.30pm. To register for the event or receive a copy of the recording visit www.glenrac.org.au/events or call the GLENRAC office on 6732 3443.
