NOAH chair re-elected for second term
Gaynor Hillier, head of Elanco Animal Health UK and Ireland was first elected chair in 2017.
Elanco head outlines proposed strategic framework 

Gaynor Hillier, head of Elanco Animal Health UK and Ireland, has been re-elected as chair of the National Office of Animal Health (NOAH).

She was first elected in 2017, having been an active member of the board since 2011 and vice-chair since 2013.

Speaking at NOAH member’s day, Gaynor outlined the proposed strategic framework for 2018-23. In the short to mid-term, Brexit will be a top priority, as NOAH works to support business continuity and opportunity.

“Our regulatory focus remains as important as ever,” she added. “As does our work on One Health topics, ensuring appropriate access and responsible use of medicines for all animals.

“We will work on delivering for our members, current and future, to provide relevant services to our current and broadening membership in the face of a changing market landscape and we will capitalise on our position as the voice of our industry to promote the benefits of our sector to society and to help create a climate where our member businesses can succeed.”

NOAH members were invited to discuss the proposals and offer feedback. The strategic framework will be finalised at the next board meeting this month.

Amur leopard cubs caught on camera

News Story 1
 A pair of Amur leopards have been captured on camera for the first time since their birth. The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland announced the birth in July, but with human presence being kept to a minimum, it was not known how many cubs had been born.

Motion sensitive cameras have now revealed that two cubs emerged from the den - at least one of which may be released into the wild in Russia within the next two or three years. The Amur leopard habitat is not open to the public, to help ensure the cubs retain their wild instincts and behaviour. Image © RZSS
