This year is jam packed with events. We have a huge couple of days lined up for those of you in the Douglas Daly and Katherine regions with field days in April, as well as some new faces around the department.

I recently spent some time working in the Department of Primary Industry and Resources (DPIR) animal welfare response centre for Tropical Cyclone Trevor. They had volunteers and assistance from the NT Cattlemen’s Association, private veterinarians, Roper Gulf Regional Council, East Arnhem Regional Council, and Animal Management in Regional and Remote Indigenous Communities. There was a lot of hard work put in behind the scenes that many people aren’t aware of. A lot of people gave up their weekend to support the teams that went out to communities to check and feed animals in the evacuated regions. It was great to see everyone banding together to help out.

Cheers

Ed
