In 2020, due to the limitations of the nationwide COVID-19 lockdown, we were not able to hold an in-person event. Instead of a one-day conference, we held a virtual version over a week, which comprised 11 webinar sessions from the Wildlife Ecology & Management and Biocontrol & Molecular Ecology teams.
Around 850 people across the country registered for the event, including staff from MfE, MPI, DOC, other ministries, councils, other CRIs, universities, and many industry stakeholders – a huge increase overall from previous years. Feedback was very positive despite the disadvantage of not being able to network in person.
The webinars are available to watch again below.
