Magdalena Butowska

RZSS WildGenes placement student

Magda is an undergraduate Zoology student at the University of Glasgow, currently undertaking her MSci work placement with the RZSS WildGenes laboratory at Edinburgh Zoo. After completing her undergraduate degree, she plans to work in the field of conservation. Magda has a keen interest in conservation genetics and in avian research. During her placement, she hopes to develop new laboratory and data analysis skills, learn how genetic data is applied directly in conservation programmes, as well as contribute towards the RZSS conservation goals. She is most excited to get involved in the Capercaillie, Scottish Wildcat, and Northern Rockhopper Penguin projects.
