My main interests are studying infectious and non-infectious threats to wildlife, how these affect their conservation, and how best to communicate and educate others on these threats. Other more specific interests include parasitology and toxicology.
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.
