Environmental Health and Animal Management

For the past 12 years Annabelle and her team have been servicing a number of indigenous communities across Cape York and the Torres Strait. These services include assisting environmental health and animal management workers in these communities to establish and maintain self-managed programmes. Annabelle also provides ongoing training, mentoring and support to the Cape communities.

It is highly rewarding to see the changes occurring as local people become more empowered to provide para-veterinary services in very remote parts of North Queensland. Visit our Facebook page for more news and updates.
