Special Zoology Meeting
'Meerkats of the Kalahari'
Dr. Julian Drewe
ABSTRACT: Dr Julian Drewe is a veterinary surgeon who works as a lecturer
at the Royal Veterinary College, Potters Bar, with a particular
interest in wild animals and the infectious diseases that can
pass between them and humans. He tracked Meerkats in the
wild, catching them to sample them for diseases (particularly
tuberculosis). The insights obtained are helping us understand
TB in badgers in this country.
