AMRRIC carry out animal population census in Gunbalanya

14 June 2022

The AMRRIC team have been busy on the ground recently! Last week, Program Manager - Operational Delivery, Dr Sophie and Project officer Lani were in Gunbalanya conducting an animal population census in collaboration with West Arnhem Regional Council. Visiting community residents door to door, the team gathered and recorded pet information as well as providing flea, tick and worming treatments to the dogs and cats.
Census is conducted with the aim of gathering comprehensive companion dogs and cats information, including photos, sex, overall body condition scoring and whether pets are entire or desexed. This community wide data collection is an important tool for future planning of animal management services for the West Arnhem Region.
We would like to thank West Arnhem Regional Council for facilitating our teams visit, our supporters and the residents of Gunbalanya for welcoming us, helping out and allowing us the pleasure of meeting and treating your pets.
