Listen on

Episode notes

Australia’s 4.8 million dog owners are used to scooping poop - but could composting our pup's output be the next step for responsible dog ownership?

CQUniversity Environmental Science PhD candidate and dog owner Emily Bryson has spent two years analysing decomposing dog poo for her research – and COVID-19 restrictions have meant the project is true backyard science.

In this episode, she shares the project and her progress with CQUni Adelaide colleague and canidae researcher Dr Bradley Smith.  

This is the fifth episode for CQUniversity’s newest podcast series: IMPACT, a podcast that explores groundbreaking research projects and their real-world impacts.
