Jane Hall

Wildlife Health Project Officer
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.
