Last week’s conference kicked off with a presentation from Leanne (Sydney) where they get over 1000 calls a day for a native animal that needs to be rescued. It was very informative. She was followed by a trustee from Predator free NZ. Then Lisa spoke about the Wild-life hospital for Dunedin. Kate from DOC did a workshop on identifying survivable injuries in different species, and after a rehabber from Coromandel, I spoke about penguin rehabilitation. After that we had a lizard PHD student talk and 2 rehabbers with case studies. A great day!
They have published a paper on their research ( https://peerj.com/articles/3272/ ).
Have a great week!
