Ben Allen 12th International Mammalogical Congress

Ben Allen

I've been involved with wildlife management and research since I was a child, and have been employed in the private and public sectors primarily as a dingo ecologist, conservationist and manager for over 12 years. I am a Vice-chancellors Research Fellow at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), an adjunct ecology lecturer with the University of Queensland (UQ), and am the Vice-president of the Australasian Wildlife Management Society (AWMS). I investigate practical solutions to a variety of complex wildlife management problems around Australia and internationally, often in livestock grazing systems and peri-urban areas. Current research areas include:  Ecology and management of dingoes in urban areas  Ecology of watermice in mangrove communities  Ecology and management of dingoes on Fraser Island  Vertebrate biocontrol of feral goats on tropical offshore islands  Eradication of vertebrate pests and reintroduction of threatened fauna on conservation-fenced livestock production lands  Ecology and management of stray dogs and their diseases in rural and remote indigenous communities across Australia and southeast Asia I have a keen interest in dingoes generally, and have published a wide variety of journal articles, book chapters, technical reports and education materials on dingo conservation, control and management.
