Annual damage to cane crops in Hinchinbrook Shire has been reduced by $1 million over the past seven years. He is Hinchinbrook Shire's pig exterminator, responsible for controlling the number of the pest species across nearly 3,000 square kilometres of north Queensland. But when the Hinchinbrook Community Feral Pig Management Program began in 2009, pest management officer Matt Buckman said the approach to culling the pests had been ad hoc at best.
An endangered North Queensland flying possum is getting a stepping stone to recovery under a program to help with its habitat pathways. The mahogany glider is one of only six possums in the genus Petaurus, identified by the wings of loose skin the tiny marsupials use to glide between trees. The rare species, thought extinct for more than 100 years, only lives along a narrow coastal habitat from Rollingstone to Tully according to Terrain NRM officer Jacqui Richards.
On a voyage from Townsville to Vietnam in March 2016, the Bison Express had a mortality rate of 1.42 per cent. A group of vets opposed to the live export trade say a consignment that left the port of Townsville in March 2016 experienced avoidable cattle deaths as a result of poor practices. The Bison Express travelled between Townsville and Vietnam over 10 days with 25 cattle deaths out of the 1,764 on board, a mortality rate of 1.42 per cent.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
