Expeditions in Africa: A focus on dangerous flora and fauna

James Bloor-Griffiths

Respect wildlife and in turn, it will respect you. I also am a firm believer that in the wilderness, there is no substitute for common sense when encountering local wildlife.

With access to extreme and remote environments now easier than ever and with the encroachment of human habitation on wilderness areas, more and more people will become exposed to dangerous flora and fauna. Thus, I feel that as a wilderness medic, basic knowledge of this topic is key, but I would love to expand on my talk from last year and provide a more in depth session on my specialist area – Africa.

This talk will cover the approach to a range of potentially dangerous species from sub-Saharan Africa; including scorpions, snakes and big game. I will aim to provide identification tips, guidance on risk mitigation and advice on the management of commonly encountered scenarios.

Venue:  

Address:
Dynamic Earth, 112 Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh, Aberdeenshire, EH8 8AS, United Kingdom

Hutton Room at Dynamic Earth

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
