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.

The symposium will highlight the many disciplines of translocation science including ecology, nutrition, behaviour, welfare, and disease risk analysis. Panel discussions will provide an opportunity for engagement and the exchange ideas and best practice.

The Short Course provides an intensive, detailed review of the health and diseases of each taxonomic group of wildlife: birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and aquatic animals. Hot topic presentations on emerging diseases impacting wildlife conservation, and gross and histopathology rounds bring these reviews to life.

The Translocation Health Symposium will highlight the many disciplines of translocation science including ecology, nutrition, behaviour, welfare, and disease risk analysis. Panel discussions will provide an opportunity for engagement and the exchange of ideas and best practice.

Each fascinating program will be delivered by expert educators, including internationally acclaimed wildlife pathologists Drs Judy St Leger (SeaWorld), Bruce Rideout (San Diego Zoo), Michael Garner (Northwest ZooPath), Kevin Keel (UC Davis), nutritionist Ellen Dierenfeld (Nottingham Trent University), eminent ecologist Carl Jones (Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust) and local wildlife specialists.
