Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

A univer­sity pro­fes­sor from Wye has won a pres­ti­gious zo­ol­ogy award.

Prof. Richard Grif­fiths has taught at the Univer­sity of Kent for over 20 years, work­ing in the School of An­thro­pol­ogy and Con­ser­va­tion.

He was awarded the Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety of Lon­don (ZSL) Marsh Award for Con­ser­va­tion Bi­ol­ogy on June 20.

The award cel­e­brates the ap­pli­ca­tion of sci­ence to the con­ser­va­tion of an­i­mal species and ther habi­tats.

ZSL praised Prof. Grif­fiths for the depth of his re­search, which cov­ers habi­tat loss, in­fec­tious dis­eases, in­va­sive species and the am­phib­ian trade.

The so­ci­ety also recog­nised that a num­ber of the pro­fes­sor’s grad­u­ates have gone on to work with am­phib­ian and rep­tile con­ser­va­tion or­gan­i­sa­tions.
