Red Fox Health on Prince Edward Island – Dec 7th, 2021

Dr Megan Jones will share her firsthand knowledge of Red Fox health on PEI at the monthly meeting of Nature PEI, Tuesday December 7th , 7:30 pm at Beaconsfield, the Carriage House, in Charlottetown.  This promises to be a topic of high interest to Islanders following a mange outbreak that greatly reduced the fox population in the Charlottetown area.

Dr. Jones is the regional director of the Atlantic node of the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative, and is a wildlife pathologist and assistant professor in the Department of Pathology and Microbiology at the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC), UPEI. 

All are welcome to attend on condition of providing proof of two vaccinations for Covid-19 and mask-wearing throughout the meeting.
