Conservation Biology

What is Veterinary Conservation Biology (VCB)?

VCB concerns itself with wildlife medicine and conservation, and in Australia we have some of the most unique and endangered native animals in the world. VCB applies a multi-disciplinary approach to conservation and involves working with a variety of stakeholders to promote sound science and evidence-based wildlife management.

Australian Veterinary Conservation Biology (AVCB) represents veterinarians with a specific interest in wildlife health, disease and management, species conservation and research.
