Translocation Health Symposium (FULL FEE)

This 1-day translocation health symposium aims to bring together conservation biologists, ecologists, veterinarians, and wildlife managers working on conservation translocations and reintroductions. Through this symposium, we hope to contribute to increased knowledge in planning and implementing successful translocations that result from well-rounded consideration of wildlife health, welfare, genetic viability, behaviour and nutrition. The symposium is comprised of a series of discussions on individual disciplines of wildlife health followed by examples of overseas and local programs, and culminating in a round-table discussion focused on best practice. We are pleased to announce that we will be joined by international speakers Dr Bruce Rideout (San Diego Zoo), Dr Ellen Dierenfeld, Wildlife Nutritionist (Nottingham Trent University), Professor Carl Jones, Chief Scientist (Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust), and a host of local ecologists and health scientists.
