Spotlight on Pat Macwhirter
Today’s special guest Pat Macwhirter is what you could call a bird whisperer. You know your bird will be in good hands with Dr Pat as she has worked and studied both in Australia and overseas and has been a trail blazer in bird medicine. As an avian vet she has always had an interest in birds, bird watching and bird medicine and surgery and, over the years, has kept and bred budgies, Major Mitchell Cockatoos and galahs, peacocks and Quaker parrots. She has authored or co-authored numerous scientific papers, books and conference proceedings and has been an invited speaker at conferences in Asia, Central America, North America, Europe and Australia.
In this episode we talk about how Pat is passionate about getting people connected with nature and trying to stem our current global wave of species extinctions. Pat answers 5 questions from the Cards for Uniqueness and shares a lot about her fascinating life.
