Missy seeks Hawkweed

HawkweedNewsThe program funding my summer field project has been in the news this week! It’s a public introduction of Missy, the detector dog, and her trainer Steve Austin. With the help of several dozen government staff, researchers and volunteers, I’m evaluating Missy’s capacity to detect Hawkweeds in a variety of conditions.

I’ll be submitting my report to the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources next month. Right now you can read punchier coverage of the program in the The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, and hear an interview with Parks Victoria’s Charlie Pascoe from late last year on the ABC’s Bush Telegraph.
