Exercise Wild Thing: Report and Review

The objective of the exercise was to test and improve the Wild Animal Management Manual (WAMM) of AUSVETPLAN. This was done by assessing feral pig management options during a simulated Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) outbreak in Far North Queensland. The project aimed to improve Australia’s preparedness for responding to an animal health emergency by enhancing the long-term capability for wild animal management by several agencies.
