Flying with rhinos

Friederike Pohlin betäubt ein Nashorn in Afrika Source: Friederike Pohlin

The third episode of our Science Talks with Catharina Vendl is about rhinos. Their horns are worth more than gold, and are pulverized and used as a party drug, medicine or financial investment. However, the penalties for poaching are relatively low, and therefore the animals are still threatened with extinction. Veterinarian Catharina Vendl talks to her colleague Friederike (Fidu) Pohlin, who did her PhD in South Africa on the white rhinoceros. originally from South Tyrol and also currently works there as a wildlife veterinarian, namely at the Research Institute for Wildlife Science and Ecology at the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna. Her areas of interest include species conservation and wildlife anesthetics.

Science journalist Catharina Vendl is a veterinarian herself and is currently doing her PhD at UNSW. We have already interviewed her about her research on whales, and you can listen to her science talks with colleagues who specialise in wolves and koalas respectively on our website. And you can also listen to her English-language programmes in the series boiling point, which she does as part of a team of scientists in Australia. Here is the link to it:
