Mr WOOD: If youre working at trying to bring a collaborative approach, wed need to know whos working, to get the best value for money I suppose. Theres money being put here, there and everywhere, it would be nice to know where its going. Dr LAWSON: The largest funding of course is, that we know of, is the federal initiative to look for the bio-control and thats what CSIRO and Animal Health in Geelong.

Dr LAWSON: Good old Rick, well there you go, I stand corrected. Mr BALDWIN: Whats he doing? Dr WOINARSKI: Hes looking at the up here at Fogg Dam basically, looking at the impacts of toads on snakes and goannas to an extent and I think hes got several million dollars over a couple of years to do that. Mr BALDWIN: Everyone else might know but whos he work for?
