INTRODUCTORY SPEAKER: Brad Wilson, DVM
Brad is a graduate of the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to attending veterinary college he worked for two years with the Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Unit at UGA during which he managed and assisted with various aquatic field research projects. This work experience and his long time fascination with natural history have contributed to his current interests in amphibian medicine and conservation, and ongoing studies of orchid and carnivorous plant ecosystems.
In the mid 1990’s Brad and Ron Gagliardo built the first tropical amphibian exhibits at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Brad’s extensive of experience with both the captive management of amphibians and many years of field studies in North, Central, and South America and southeast Asia have provided him with unique perspectives on clinical amphibian diseases and their management; education which is not available through classic university curriculum.
Brad has consulted on amphibian health management issues with captive tropical amphibian collections throughout Central and South America and Southeast Asia. He has also lectured and instructed at numerous amphibian husbandry and medicine workshops throughout these regions. In addition to his interests in herpetology, Brad is very active in plant conservation particularly with native orchids and carnivorous plants in the southeastern United States. In addition to co-owner of two veterinary practices in metro Atlanta, he is a Conservation Scientist employed at The Atlanta Botanical Garden.
Among the highlights of Brad’s travels are the tepuis of the Guiana Shield in Venezuela and multiple trips to the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. He has enjoyed capturing and presenting the essence of these unique and fragile communities through still photography and videography.
