ZSL Wildlife forensics: tools from medicine and crime scene investigation to help save wildlife

Wildlife forensics: using tools from medicine and crime scene investigation to help save wildlife - a ZSL Science and Conservation Event.


Modern conservation has access to an array of techniques, such as DNA fingerprinting for genetic monitoring of populations over time, blood screening for disease in wild animals, and serum tests for indicators of stress and/or reproduction. Such techniques are regularly used in a forensic or medical context, but these tools are now on the front line for fighting wildlife declines.

Three speakers will discuss how techniques from forensic and medical science are finding new applications in wildlife conservation. Examples of patient or crime-victim investigation will be transferred into an ecological setting and used to highlight how forensics can be applied to identify the causes of wildlife decline and to put management strategies in place that can help threatened species.

Organised by Tom Hart, Institute of Zoology, ZSL.

This event in the 'Communicating Science' series will begin at 6.00pm (doors from 5.00pm) and talks are scheduled to finish at 7.30pm; admission is free and open to everyone (no advance booking or registration required). This event will be held in the ZSL Meeting Rooms and seats will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A dinner with the speakers will follow this event and places must be booked in advance. A dinner booking form will be provided from the ZSL website shortly; please download for further information.

ZSL Science and Conservation Events: An essential part of ZSL's work is to communicate relevant, high-quality zoological and conservation science. The integrated ZSL Science and Conservation Events programme includes Symposia, and the new 'Wildlife Conservation' and 'Communicating Science' series. Topics cover a wide variety of zoological and conservation themes, and international experts present and discuss their research
