All are welcome!!! Come along for two days of knowledge sharing, discussion, and collaboration on one of Western Australia’s largest biosecurity threats – Phytophthora Dieback

This year’s theme is Tools for the Future. We have decided to embrace this mindset and run DIG in a hybrid format. There are options to attend and present in person or via an online platform. We will have experts presenting research from international and interstate locations, continuing to include the broad network of countries affected by Phytophthora in the discourse depite travel restrictions.

The conference is fully catered will conclude with a sundowner networking event at the end of the first day.

The second day will commence with a forum focusing in on Phytophthora Dieback the South Coast Region of WA. We will also team up with the Department of Biodiversity Conservation & Attractions as well as the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development to talk about new methods of delivering biosecurity training and awareness, and to explore the impact of Phytophthora at Wireless Hill Park.
