I am interested in infectious and non-infectious diseases that may have conservation implications for free ranging wildlife. I also have a keen interest in conservation education, comparative anatomy, and parasitology.
Garden Wildlife Health (GWH)
Garden Wildlife Health is a collaborative project between the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), Froglife and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) which aims to monitor the health of, and identify disease threats to, British wildlife. Our particular focus is on garden birds, amphibians, reptiles and hedgehogs. For this we count on the help of the public to submit reports of sick or dead wildlife and to submit samples for analysis.
