You’ve probably never thought much about dung beetles before. That’s okay, because renowned expert, John Feehan has. In this talk, he explains the immense difference dung beetles make to sustainable farming environments.
John spent 31 years at CSIRO working on the Dung Beetle Program.
He has had five insects named after him – an ant, two grasshoppers and a mite. He has also had an Australian native species of Dung Beetle named after him.
In 1997, he was awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for his services to Australian Agriculture and was an ACT Finalist for Australian of the Year in 2011.
