July 2018 Vic Simpson

It is with great regret that we announce the passing of Vic Simpson, pioneering wildlife vet and long-standing Society member. Vic was well known internationally and will be remembered in the birding community for his work in identifying the link between discarded lead fishing weights and swan mortality, as well many other ground-breaking studies of mammal deaths such as the carrying out of cetacean post-mortems. The Society offers its condolences to family and friends. Vic’s funeral will take place at Penmount Crematorium on August 13th at 2pm.
