Ms Jane Hall
Taronga Conservation Society Australia
Jane is a Wildlife Health Project Officer at Taronga Conservation Society Australia, and is a long-term partner working in a multidisciplinary team
for the translocation of native species back into Booderee National Park.
Her role in this project involves conducting disease risk assessments for the three species being translocated for reintroduction into Booderee (long-nosed
potoroo, southern brown bandicoot, eastern quoll). She also conducts health assessments on individuals before and after translocation and investigates
whether infectious or parasitic diseases may be a threat to translocation conservation actions using a series of diagnostic techniques. Jane also
provides a mobile laboratory for thorough diagnostic assessment of the animals being assessed.
