I am also interested in disease dynamics in wild populations, particularly understanding disease prevalence and its impact on individual and population survival.

Ocean voyagers - the travels of northern rockhopper penguins across the high seas
In addition to caring for these charismatic ambassadors for their species, here at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) we have a vital role to play in protecting the remaining wild population of northern rockhopper penguins which are classified as endangered on the IUCN Red List.
