Biostatistics Refresher Course - online
The Australian Registry of Wildlife Health, supported by the Cybec Foundation and CL Davis Foundation, is hosting a Wildlife Health and Pathology Short Course, and a Translocation Health Symposium. 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 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 (Washington State University), Kevin Keel (UC Davis), nutritionist Ellen Dierenfeld (Nottingham Trent University), eminent ecologist Carl Jones (Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust) and local wildlife specialists.
Scholarships for local graduate students and wildlife veterinarians from developing countries will be made available.

WHA and AusVet Animal Health Services have previously run a 3-day wildlife focused Quantum GIS mapping workshop and 2-day Wildlife Epidemiology workshop. These workshops were both a great success, not only providing participants with new skills but also an opportunity to exchange ideas with others working with wildlife in a variety of ways.
