Project team - Working together with experts

The Project Team brings pest management and research expertise together from many organisations, including the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre, Industry & Investment NSW (formerly NSW Department of Primary Industries), and various groups around Australia. Working with national advisory groups, community champions, leading scientists, landholder and industry representatives, community action groups, natural resource managers, information technology and web-design specialists, the project brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise together in this important national feral animal program.
The project team consists of Peter West, Chris Lane, Jessica Marsh, Brian Lukins, Glen Saunders, Keryn Lapidge, Daniel Scott, Mike Newton and members of the CIMAG community myna control action group - under the guidance of the FeralScan Project Steering Committee consisting of many members.
This project is supported by the Canberra Indian Myna Action Group (CIMAG) ( and members, who have successfully pioneered a community-led myna control program resulting in removal of 32,000 myna birds through volunteer trapping programs, and supported critical research on myna birds.
