B.Sc. Hons. (Bangor University) Zoology with Marine Zoology, PGCE (University of Glasgow) Biology
Andrew is undertaking a part time MSc by research at the University of Edinburgh (supervised by Dr Gurå Bergkvist and Dr Alastair Macdonald), and RZSS (Dr Gill Murray-Dickson). His research interest is in the use of DNA collected from the guts of blowflies, captured in tropical forest to identify the species of mammal occurring there.
He has a particular interest in the Seram bandicoot (Rhynchomeles prattorum); a marsupial known only from seven specimens collected on the Indonesian island of Seram in 1920.

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.
