The project was initiated by the Dung Beetle Release Strategy Group. The DBRSG was driven by a group of passionate landowners, with support from their science provider Landcare Research and their invaluable financial stakeholders through an MPI Sustainable Farming Fund Project.
To insure the long term success of dung beetles in NZ a company was formed in 2014 called Dung Beetle Innovations. The key staff member is Dr Shaun Forgie, who previously worked for Landcare Research as the science provider to the DBRSG.
Dr Shaun Forgie is an entomologist and the Director of Production. For all technical enquiries contact Shaun on 021 040 8685 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
