Mr Andreas Glanznig is the CEO of the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre – Australia’s largest collaboration of governments, industry groups and research institutions, working together on national scale pest animal management innovation. He led the CRC’s executive team in assembling the successful IACRC five year extension program, 2012-2017.

Former roles include leading the World Wildlife Fund’s advocacy team on invasive species policy reform where he played a driving role in efforts to close Commonwealth quarantine law loopholes that allowed the import of new high risk weeds, as well as elevating island pest eradications to become a national issue.
