EVENT NOTICE: Vet talk Native species reintroduction

Thursday 12 November, 7pm-9pm     

Education Centre, RZSS Edinburgh Zoo

Booking required. £8 non-members, £6 members

RZSS Edinburgh Zoo will host an informative talk on 12 November about the role of vets in successful species reintroductions in the UK.

Delivered by the Zoo’s very own vets, Dr Simon Girling and Dr Adam Naylor, on Tuesday 12 November  7pm – 9pm, the veterinary experts will share their role in the health assessment of the reintroduced species and why it is vitally important to the success of the project.

The talk will also examine and explain how post-release assessments of health are essential to determine whether a reintroduction has succeeded and Girling and Naylor will also delve into the considerations regarding native species reintroductions such as the Eurasian beaver and water vole.

The talk will take place at the Education Centre at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo and tickets to the event cost £8 for non-members and £6 for members, which are payable by cash on arrival. Entrance starts from 7pm via the members’ gate at the top of the Zoo car park, whilst the lecture will start promptly at 7:30pm.
