Local Government Animal Welfare in Emergencies workshop

Local Government Animal Welfare in Emergencies workshop
20 Aug
22 Aug

Description

WALGA and The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) have partnered to host two full-day Local Government Animal Welfare in Emergencies Workshops in August.

The workshops will offer the opportunity to learn about integrating animal welfare considerations in the development of plans, policies and procedures for emergencies and the benefits it has for building community resilience. Participants will have the chance to network and learn from case studies and experienced professionals on planning for and responding to animal welfare in emergencies.

The current National and Regional Animal Welfare Emergency Management Coordinator for the Ministry for Primary Industries in New Zealand, Hayley Squance of BML Consulting Limited NZ, will facilitate the workshops. Hayley has been engaged in a number of recent emergency events and her knowledge and experience is well recognised in Australia and New Zealand, as well as taking her to a number of international locations.

WALGA and DPIRD will continue to work closely in the future to offer further opportunities for engagement and to make key information from the workshops available to those unable to attend this time around.
