14/03/2017    Immigrants to the rescue! How can immigration help to save threatened wildlife populations?    0.25 Day

Huxley Lecture Theatre, Main Meeting Rooms, ZSL London Zoo, ZSL. Contact: 0207 449 6227 jennifer.howes@zsl.org www.zsl.org/geneticrescueevent

6pm – 7.45pm (Free event) Small populations of threatened species the world over can be particularly vulnerable to random events such as natural disasters or disease outbreaks, as well as the risks of inbreeding. One potential solution is to introduce external unrelated individuals (or ‘immigrants’) into these populations to increase genetic diversity – a form of ‘genetic rescue’. And yet, despite the promise of this solution, there has been very little uptake in the process.
