Wildlife Forensics

Wildlife forensics uses the technology like DNA profiling (‘DNA fingerprinting’) and DNA sequencing using this information to fight against wildlife crime. There are “n” numbers of modern DNA approaches that are of useful purpose of wildlife crime investigations. They are highly discriminatory when used appropriately. Forensic Science represents the merged form of scientific insight and the law in a unique way. With much increased frequency, scientists from broad spectrum of disciplines are invited to share their knowledge, expertise and guidance to issues arising and questions within the civil litigation field and criminal justice system as well. Even marine biologists are considered to share their thoughts and knowledge.

Wildlife Forensics provides a specific field-oriented introduction to the forensic science domain and the special rules and practices governing to utilize the science within the laws and justice system. Focusing to the sound application of marine science to forensic issues is a basic understanding of the newly invented procedures and requirements inherent in our legal system.

Wildlife Forensics places a powerful emphasis on its functional learning. Forensics participants are also afforded the unique opportunity to develop scene management. It is mainly designed for practicing veterinarians/veterinary pathologists, marine biologists, wildlife conservation officers, and stranding network personnel desiring a practical introduction to forensic science. Wildlife Forensics, and its major methods and applications gave a practical and accessible approach to the key areas involved in this developing subject.
