Dr Amy Haigh

In 2011, Amy successfully defended a PhD at UCC on rural habitat use by the western European hedgehog. Prior to this she was involved in collecting data on the free ranging lemurs at Fota Wildlife Park. This was particularly concentrated on recording incidents of feeding by visitors. Between 2012-2014, she did a post doc (funded by Fota Wildlife Park and the Irish Research Council) on the red squirrels in Fota Wildlife Park. This investigated the impact of visitors, feeding behaviour and variation in behaviour between squirrels in the wildlife park and less populated and disturbed areas of Fota Island. Currenty, Amy is a technical officer at Univeristy College Dublin
