The Dieback Information Group (DIG) was formed 2001 to bring together people working on different aspects of Phytophthora Dieback management across the south-west of Western Australia.

It allows for government agencies, industry groups, researches, local government & conservation groups to discuss the latest research, on-ground projects and current advancements in the management of Phytophthora Dieback.

To date, the Dieback Working Group have organised twelve DIG forums that have each attracted up to 220 guests each from universities, government and non-government agencies, consultants, mining companies, forestry organisations, landcare groups and others. DIG has speakers from across the above sectors who are all involved in some way with managing or researching Phytophthora Dieback - so a diverse range of issues relating to the science and management of Phytophthora Dieback are covered.

We are improving the DIG Conference experience every year and finding more ways for people to be involved.
