The Australian Registry of Wildlife Health, supported by the Cybec Foundation and CL Davis Foundation, is proud to present:
A Wildlife Health & Pathology Short Course, 18 - 22 February 2019 to provide a systematic review of the health and diseases of wildlife, and practical skills based workshops.
A Wildlife Translocation Health Symposium, 23 February 2019 to unite ecologists and health scientists and contribute to a best practice framework for wildlife translocation sciences.
A Satellite Wildlife Health & Pathology Short Course, 27 February - 1 March 2019 in Bangkok Thailand, in collaboration with Chulalangkorn
University, to further build international wildlife health and conservation networks (dates to be confirmed).
The course is open to anyone with an interest in wildlife disease, including pathologists, veterinarians, conservation biologists, veterinary students and postgraduate students. Practical workshops on necropsy, laboratory skills, and histopathology will be offered.
The symposium will highlight the many disciplines of translocation science including ecology, nutrition, behaviour, welfare, and disease risk analysis. Panel discussions will provide an opportunity for engagement and the exchange ideas and best practice.
Each fascinating program will be delivered by expert educators, including internationally acclaimed wildlife pathologists Drs Judy St Leger (SeaWorld), Bruce Rideout (San Diego Zoo), Michael Garner (Washington State University), Kevin Keel (UC Davis), nutritionist Ellen Dierenfeld (Nottingham Trent University), eminent ecologist Carl Jones (Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust) and local wildlife specialists.
Scholarships for local graduate students and wildlife veterinarians from developing countries will be made available.
