Exploring the vet's role in wildlife health and conservation

If you’re interested in conservation biology, wildlife, public health, welfare or all of the above, don’t miss the Annual Conference.

Our local and international speakers will update you on a range of topics, including animal health in international development, bat lyssavirus, white-nose syndrome, land clearing, viruses as biocontrol agents, culture and conservation, non-lethal management of wild predators, veterinary treatment of wildlife in Australia, bat immunology and Nipah virus. British Veterinary Association senior vice President Sean Wensley will discuss the role of the veterinary profession in conservation, the importance of biodiversity, and implications for animal welfare.

The Australian Veterinary Conservation Biology (AVCB) group has teamed up with Wildlife Health Australia (WHA) to provide a workshop on diagnosing emergency and exotic wildlife diseases of relevance in Australia. You’ll need to register asap – numbers are strictly limited.

The annual conference is the perfect place to network with colleagues. Join us on Wednesday 7 June for a combined dinner with Australian Veterinarians in Public Health, the Australian Veterinary History Society and AVCB members. Enjoy a banquet style Indian dinner at the Spice Dine, a short stroll from the conference venue.
