Subject: Animal Biosecurity RD&E in Australia – For Action

Dear Louise,

I am contacting you today on behalf of the National Animal Biosecurity Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Strategy implementation committee to seek your participation in the development of the Animal Biosecurity Snapshot report. This report is aimed at capturing all of the animal biosecurity RD&E effort undertaken within the last 5 years and will be of high value to various animal industries to identify where potential RD&E gaps/priorities exist, areas where collaboration would be beneficial, or areas where there is a risk of duplication.

You have been identified as the point of contact for work on buffalo and we would like to request that you view and complete the attached survey and return it by COB on the 20th of August. If you are not the correct point of contact for this information I would greatly appreciate if you could please forward this email onto the relevant person within your organisation.

This survey is open and encouraged to be shared with other departments and relevant animal organisations so the report can be as comprehensive as possible.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Kind regards,


Ashleigh Wildridge | Animal Biosecurity RD&E Coordinator
