FERA/York - 1st International Conference on Dog Population Management 2012

Invitation to attend

On behalf of the organising committee we warmly invite you to attend the 1st International Conference on Dog Population Management 2012, September 4-8, 2012 .

Humane, effective and sustainable dog population management (DPM) is a challenge we will increasingly face. Dogs play an important role as companion and work animals but are also a major source of concern for the transmission of rabies and other zoonoses and for attacks on people and livestock.

The main objective of the conference is to bring the public sector together with ecologists, economists and specialists in animal welfare, animal health and education.

Specific aims are:
To facilitate discussions and sharing of information on DPM among stakeholders;
To promote awareness of novel technologies, such as immunocontraception, vaccine delivery systems and software for DPM;
To encourage inter-sectoral collaboration, innovation and policy development, particularly in the context of rabies control
To provide evidence-based information for effective, humane DPM;
To promote animal and human health and wellbeing by reducing the incidence of zoonoses and the environmental impacts associated with dog population control....
