Another Successful Mammal Working Group Conference!

Dudley Zoological Gardens hosted a hugely popular MWG conference this year, which covered all aspects of mammal husbandry from introductions to native release programmes and health care. 

The hosts at Dudley Zoo put on a great meeting that ran very smoothly and was enjoyed by all who attended. The meeting saw 143 delegates attend over the three days, with the last day playing host to the first of BIAZA’s new Training Academy days with a workshop on “A Keepers Role in Managing Health and Disease” run by Matthew Hartley from Zoo and Wildlife Solutions Ltd., along with members of the MWG committee. The workshop covered all aspects of a zoo keepers role in veterinary care and included hands on  sessions preparing for a medical procedure and setting up quarantine facilities, to faecal screening and administering medication.  Along with presentations and group brain storming sessions the workshops was a resounding success and enjoyed by all.
