I borrowed my dad's car to visit another young student, Roger Wilkinson, to buy a female Bourke's parakeet.
We both lived in the Flyde, inland to the east of Blackpool. Roger went on, after studying for this Ph.D. at Southampton, to become the highly successful Curator of Birds at Chester Zoo. In 1965 he was only fifteen or sixteen, I would guess, and we seemed to hit it off. He said: "Come and have a look at these," showing me a wooden chest of drawers in a shed, converted to a block of rodent cages. "Gerbils.


Conservation News

In 2002 there were reports of a young black bear near the top of the mountain but this is the first time one has been spotted since. Our Head of Conservation and Research, Roger Wilkinson, and Simon Dowell from John Moores have just returned from China to see for themselves how our support is making a difference. By sponsoring our China project on our Act for Wildlife website your donation could be helping with amazing discoveries like this one.
Not only have they had one of the best breeding seasons on record, Katala also won the Governor’s Award this year for their ‘loyal dedication and unwavering commitment to wildlife conservation in the Province of Palawan’. The successful breeding season has meant that Katala banded 75 hatchlings on Rasa Island, and 19 of the 22 hatchlings on Pandanan Island. Roger Wilkinson, our Head of Field Conservation and Research, visited the site on Pandanan in April this year and took part in the field work and banding of the chicks. These fantastic results, both here and in the field, will have a significant impact on the future survival of this rare parrot. Congratulations Katala! This has allowed scientists to understand the movements of cheetahs and enable problem animals to be identified and relocated, protecting them for future generations. The team has also used GPS tracking collars, fitted to a number of cheetahs, to provide evidence that they were not involved in recent livestock predation in the area. Roger Wilkinson, Head of Field Conservation and Research, said: "We are involved in lots of outreach conservation activities that complement our conservation work in the zoo - work which helps many different species throughout the world. "It’s great to think that some of this work has captured the imagination of Hollywood’s most famous couple and the money they have kindly donated will go a long way to helping the conservation programmes run by the sanctuaryâ€. Each rhino is radio-collared and will be closely monitored by WWF-India and Manas National Park staff. The translocations are the backbone of the ambitious Indian Rhino Vision (IRV) 2020 - a partnership among the government of Assam, the International Rhino Foundation, the World Wide Fund for Nature, the Bodoland Territorial Council, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service - that aims to attain a population of 3,000 wild rhinos in seven of Assam's protected areas by the year 2020. Dr Roger Wilkinson, Chester Zoo’s Head of Field Conservation and Research, said: "Chester Zoo’s conservation efforts extend beyond the zoo’s boundaries and assistance from organisations such as ours can make a real difference to species everywhere.
