The Invasive animals CRC will be hosting a workshop and launch of a new book - Managing Bird Damage to Fruit and Horticultural Crops - on 20 September 2007. The Minister for Conservation, Senator Eric Abetz, has kindly agreed to launch the book and will speak on a packed program.
John Tracey from NSW DPI (senior author of the book) will speak as will starling guru Dr. Ron Sinclair from South Australia, Brad Wells from Horticulture Australia and David Lowe from the NSW Wine Industry Association as well as a number of others.
The program is cohosted by the Bureau of Rural Sciences who produced the book, and is at 9.00 for 9.30 at the Theatrette of Parliament House. Everyone is welcome, but you must register with firstname.lastname@example.org on 02 6201 2887 for catering purposes. It should be a very useful networking event for anyone with an interest in bird issues.
