Thanks to Ally for a superb talk at BERG tonight - ended our 2015 seminar series on a really high note about the benefits of partners for positive outcomes.
And a big thank you to Hayley who has ensured the BERG research group meetings have run smoothly all semester, and to all our speakers who have made them so engaging and interesting. Eoin will soon be looking for volunteers for next year, so please offer.
I wish you all happy festivities and a relaxing break.
My best, Hannah

Subject: UK Primate pet trade
There are thousands of primates caught up in the UK primate pet trade. Next year the Government will be reviewing the Code of Practice for the Welfare of Privately-Kept Non-Human Primates. Wild Futures has joined forces with six other organisations concerned for animal welfare, including the British Veterinary Association, calling for an end to this sad trade.
