Jacques Flamand

With broad experience with African, Middle Eastern and Asian wildlife, Dr. Flamand has worked as a wildlife veterinarian in South Africa in the Kruger National Park and on the Natal Parks Board. He was Director of both the National Wildlife Research Centre (TAIF) and King Khalid Wildlife Research Centre, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Dr. Flamand was Veterinary Adviser to the Dept. of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation in Royal Chitwan National Park, Nepal.

His interests and the majority of his life’s work entails: wild animal captures; wild animals’ adaptation to captivity, holding, transportation; reintroductions and parasitism of game species, together with the interaction and the disease implications of game animals mixing with domestic stock. Game ranching and wildlife veterinary ecology are also areas of interest. The genetics of small populations and the implications thereof, especially in the rhinoceros and lion, have been major subjects of his study. In Saudi Arabia, Dr. Flamand developed a protocol for the eradication of tuberculosis in a captive breeding herd of Arabian oryx held at TAIF, the first such attempt in a wild ungulate anywhere in the world. His most recent posting in Chitwan was to establish a veterinary programme designed to address the veterinary concerns of both the wildlife and surrounding domestic livestock.
