As part of our seventh anniversary celebrations, we've launched a new podcast, The Humanimal Connection.
The podcast series has been developed for anyone who wishes to see a fairer deal in medical advances for both humans and animals, and consists of an initial series of seven episodes to coincide with our anniversary. In them, we discuss One Medicine approaches in areas such as treating injured terrestrial and marine wildlife, sustainability and mental health.
Episode 1 - ‘Oneness – How charging ahead with One Medicine will make us all stronger together’
This episode features Professor Roberto La Ragione and Dr Ben Marshall, both Trustees of Humanimal Trust, who explain more about the charity and its vision of One Medicine. Joining the podcast from Kruger National Park, South Africa is Dr Johan Marais, Founder of the organisation, Saving the Survivors, a team of wildlife vets whose mission is to save every animal that has fallen victim to poaching or traumatic incident. In the episode, Dr Marais talks about the work of Saving the Survivors and how they have adapted techniques from human medicine to use in the field to treat rhinos with severe facial and gunshot injuries caused by poachers.
Episode 2: Turning the tide with One Medicine – a journey under the sea
Episode Three: Vaccines and the lessons from veterinary medicine
Episode Four: Mental health & the challenges faced by the medical professions
In episode four, we discuss the important issue of mental health, how we define it, and the challenges shared by the human and veterinary medicine professions. Join us in this thought-provoking and insightful conversation with our guests, Dr Claire Simeone, Dr Salma Elnahas and Nina Mileksic.

In this final two-part podcast of series one (Episodes 6 & 7), we're joined by Dr James Bevan and Dr Simon Doherty to talk about sustainability from the perspectives of human and veterinary medicine and areas of crossover between the two medical professions.
