Dr. Andy Jennings and Professor Geraldine Veron have devoted their careers to studying the ecology, evolution and conservation of small carnivores, especially mongoose and civet species in Asia and Africa. They are both members of the IUCN/SCC Small Carnivore Specialist Group, and have helped assess the conservation status of many Asian small carnivores. Together they completed the first radio-telemetry project on the short-tailed mongoose in Southeast Asia, and have published several scientific papers, articles and books on mongooses and other carnivores.
