Dr Leanne Wicker
Senior Veterinarian @Australian Wildlife Health Centre, Healesville Sanctuary, Zoos Victoria
A lifelong passion for nature and the great outdoors led Leanne to a Bachelor of Science, majoring in marine ecology, before moving into veterinary medicine, graduating from the University of Sydney in 2003. During her time in mixed private practice she developed a love of wildlife medicine, providing veterinary assistance to marine mammal strandings and threatened species programs in Tasmania. Since 2006, Leanne has focussed on conservation medicine and wildlife welfare and she helped to establish the first rescue centre for trade confiscated pangolins in Southeast Asia and has completed a Masters of Veterinary Science with a thesis on trade confiscated and captive born Viverridae. She recently joined the committee of management of Wildlife Health Australia, sits on the Executive Committee of the Victorian branch of the AVA and is a long-term, active member of the Australasian Wildlife Diseases Association.
