Chris Foggin

Dr. Chris Foggin has spent most of his professional life in the service of the Zimbabwean Government. Prior to the establishment of his Wildlife Unit within the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS), Dr. Foggin had been primarily involved in research within DVS on rabies epidemiology, and had also played a pioneering role in developing management practices for the intensive production of crocodiles and ostriches, in addition to undertaking emergency wildlife work on an irregular basis.

The foot-and-mouth disease-free buffalo programme emanated from Dr. Foggin’s offices. As head of the Wildlife Unit, he has been responsible for Veterinary Regulations concerning the movement of wildlife both within the country and externally. The relocation of oxpeckers is an ongoing exercise, and with the promotion of venison production and marketing, Dr. Foggin has been called on to assist in developing this section.

The ongoing rhino snaring crisis and the pressures of dealing with wildlife/cattle disease problems in Zimbabwe’s current economic situation have added greatly to the workload for the Wildlife Unit.
