One Health - Indigenous Community Animal Management
Dates:     23-55 September 2014
Venue:    Darwin - Double Tree Hilton

Join us in September at the 10th Anniversary AMRRIC Conference.  We invite you to be a part of this highly anticipated event in the animal management sector and expand your network in the one health community.

Our conference is unique, being the only event specifically focussed on animal management in Indigenous communities and is expected to attract approximately 250 delegates from around Australia and the world.  This event is a 'must attend' for all those involved in global indigenous companion animal and community health, policy and practice - including those working in community, all levels of government, the not for profit welfare, research, veterinary and pet industry sectors.  The conference is an excellent opportunity for delegates to engage and share information and walk away with new insights, strategies and practices relating to the health and welfare of Indigenous communities and the animals that are so important to their culture and social fabric.

Contribute to the conference by submitting your abstract.

Darwin - the relaxed, tropical capital of the Northern Territory.  Situated on the edge of a harbour larger than the iconic Sydney Harbour, Darwin is a beautiful, fascinating tropical city that prides itself in its unique and friendly laid-back lifestyle.  Darwin is also the departure point for unique Australian adventure.  From Darwin, it's a day trip to world heritage-listed national parks, rich tapestries of wetlands and wildlife, Aboriginal rock art galleries and island communities.  There's plenty to do in the CBD too from market shopping, the waterfront precinct, gardens and walking trails, art and food as well as historic landmarks.
