The Australasian Vertebrate Pest Conference is a not-for-profit event held every three years to bring together researchers, land managers, students and policy makers dealing with pest animals. The 16th Australasian Vertebrate Pest Conference will be held at the Pullman King George Square, in the CBD of Brisbane, Queensland 26-29 May 2014. The last time the conference was held in Queensland was 1987.

The Conference is proudly hosted by Biosecurity Queensland (part of the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) and supported by the Queensland Weed Society. The 2014 conference will incorporate the Queensland Pest Animal Symposium, a biennial conference aimed at those interested in pest animal management issues of particular relevance to
Queensland. The Queensland Weeds Society is a proud supporter of the Queensland Pest Animal Symposium and will continue this association through support of the 16th Australasian Vertebrate Pest Conference.

The conference program consists of presentations on control initiatives, innovations in research, management and policy and the latest research outcomes. Ample time will be scheduled for networking and discussion during breaks in the scientific program and during the social program, which will include a Welcome Reception and Conference Dinner.

The aim of the conference is to bring people involved in pest animal research and management together from Australasia and elsewhere, to network with other like-minded people, including, but not limited to: researchers and students involved in pest management, State government agencies, Federal and international government agencies, Local government pest officers and councillors, landowners and managers, Natural Resource Management bodies, members of conservation agencies and Industry bodies, contractors and community project officers.


AVPC is again proud to support the ACTA Award acknowledging excellence in pest animal management at the field level. AVPC will provide complimentary registration for the winning field operators with free attendance at all social functions.
