Yes, Lydia has a real passion for field work. In fact, she’s currently completing her PhD in Wildlife and Conservation Medicine. Another string to her already impressive bow. And Auckland Zoo is a great place for veterinarians like Lydia to flex their conservation muscle.
Here, we care for sick and injured Zoo residents, as well as animals who will be returned to our forests and oceans. Like our collaboration with Kelly Tarlton’s that sees Lydia and her team rehabilitate marine animals so they can be returned to the ocean where they belong.
