#028 Flying Fox Conservation With Dr. Alison Peel

🎤 And on today’s episode I interview Dr. Alison Peel a veterinarian and wildlife disease ecologist whose talk I attended at the Australian Veterinary Association annual conference this year held in Perth. Her talk was entitled “Interactions between land use change, flying-fox 🦇 ecology and Hendra Virus Dynamics”.
