PBMS involved in a major new collaboration on Scottish raptors

Gaby Peniche of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh, has begun work on a project assessing raptor health and using this as an indicator of ecosystem health.  The PBMS will be working with Gaby and her supervisors Professors Anna Meredith (University of Edinburgh) and Des Thompson (Principal Adviser on Biodiversity at Scottish Natural Heritage), together with other major stakeholder organisations (such as Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture (SASA), Scotland’s Rural College-SRUC,  The University of the Highlands and Islands and the RSPB)  over the collection of raptor carcasses and subsequent sharing of samples between the various stakeholders.  A recent appeal outlining who should be contacted over collection of any birds of prey carcasses found in Scotland has recently been published by the Scottish Raptor Study Group; details of the appeal can be found here
