Abstract

Collaborations between zoos & universities provide opportunities to bring together complementary skills to maximise outcomes for animals, the community & our world. Charles Sturt University (CSU) provides training, diagnostic & research expertise that can collaboratively value-add to the efforts of zoos.CSU’s Graduate Certificate in Captive Vertebrate Management is the only specialised University postgraduate program in Australia in captive vertebrate management. This is a distance online course with a hands-on residential school at Adelaide Zoo. It is designed for zoo staff to upgrade their skills, knowledge & gain a tertiary qualification in captive animal management for display & conservation purposes and was developed with Taronga Western Plains & Adelaide Zoos (http://futurestudents.csu.edu.au/captive-vertebrate).Partnering zoos with a university can increase research capacity & efficiency. CSU’s research expertise includes behaviour & welfare; avian, reptilian, monotreme & marsupial disease; & wildlife health investigations. CSU’s veterinary diagnostic laboratory provides services to vets & zoos in pathology, haematology, biochemistry, microbiology & parasitology; including circovirus diagnostic testing for the psittacine beak & feather disease (https://www.csu.edu.au/vetservices/vdl).
