Invasive Animals CRC > About us > Participants


We are a 27 member partnership to develop new knowledge, products, strategies and services that deliver more strategic and efficient invasive animal control. The collaborative structure of our organisation makes it uniquely able to bring together a broad and diverse range of key partners and groups to ensure a holistic approach to education, engagement and best practice pest animal management techniques.

The collaboration involves:

  • a powerful mix of industry investors, research providers, commercial businesses and extension organisations that cover all key points on the value chain from R&D to adoption;
  • industry and government investors to ensure a strong and practical end-user focus;
  • deep research capability in a variety of key areas including ecology, biocontrol, environmental genomics, modelling, new toxin development, and community engagement;
  • key overseas research and commercial partners in New Zealand, US and the UK to facilitate knowledge and technology transfer, and build critical mass to tackle problems of shared concern; and
  • commercial businesses to take new products to market and grow jobs.
