The Humanimal Connection Podcast Series

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

From overland to the UK and South Africa, join us as we visit the oceans and go beneath the sea in Episode 2 to chat to Hub member, Dr Claire Simeone. Claire is a marine mammal veterinarian, conservation leader, TED Fellow, Founder and CEO of Sea Change Health and coined the term ‘zoognosis’. We’ll be chatting to Claire about her work, Cronutt the sea lion, the messages that the oceans and animals need us to hear and how she has applied techniques from human medicine to treat marine mammals.
