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, 25-28 February 2019 in Bangkok Thailand, in collaboration with Chulalangkorn University, to further build international wildlife health and conservation networks.

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.

Recent events, such as record wildlife extinctions, growth in the illegal trade of wildlife, the re-emergence of Ebola Virus overseas, and Hendra virus closer to home, highlight the significance of having well trained and educated field staff, clinical veterinarians, diagnostic specialists and wildlife managers. We need to protect our unique species, tourism, and trade, as well as ensure a healthy future for our people.

Building on a formula formed through the highly successful delivery of similar courses in 2008 and 2012, this education event is ambitious and multifaceted. Your support will allow us to deliver a ground-breaking education program to a passionate and engaged audience, in an affordable manner. Support can be targeted towards educational or social events, or directed to scholarships for Australian students or wildlife health professionals from low socio-economic level countries.
