Wildlife Health Australia
Our final Trust Talk for 2019 will shine a light on the importance of wildlife disease prevention in Australia. Special guest speaker Tiggy Grillo, National Coordinator with Wildlife Health Australia (WHA), will discuss the national organisation's approach to enhancing and protecting the natural environment, which involves connecting and supporting people and groups with an interest in wildlife health issues.

Tiggy Grillo has worked for WHA since May 2009. She obtained her veterinary degree in Glasgow, Scotland in 1999. After completing a PhD in molecular parasitology in 2006, she moved to Australia to work for the then new School of Animal & Veterinary Sciences at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, NSW. Her previous experiences include population field surveys on raptors in the USA, the compilation of a sea turtle rehabilitation manual in the UK, and a review of sewage effects of harbour porpoise in Scotland.
