On the MSc WAH course there was one distinction, five merits, two passes and one fail. Sandra Wenger from Switzerland achieved the distinction, received the Mazuri Zoo Foods prize for the student with the highest aggregate marks and also the prize for the best project for her work on the anaesthesia of rhino in Zimbabwe and South Africa.
Of the thirteen MSc WAB students, eight achieved passes, there were four merits and one failed. Anna Wallwork received the Course Prize for the student with the highest aggregate marks, and the Project Prize was split between Chloe Booth and Anna Wallwork. Chloe worked with Karina Acevedo-Whitehouse in the IoZ on the genetics of immunity to disease in Galapagos sealions and Anna on blood markers of capture mypopathy in anaesthetised rhino in Zimbabwe.
Some of the graduates have already found posts or have posts to return to working with wild animals in Ghana, Indonesia, Australia, UK and the Middle East and others will be searching for the right opportunity.
