Shows and Talks by Matt Brash

Matt's entertaining show 'Zoo Vet' and more science based talk 'The 21st Century Ark' have been drawn from his wealth of experience and knowledge. Talks can also be tailor made for your event to specifically suit your audience.

Matt Brash - Zoo Vet

Matt has been a zoo vet for over twenty years, a rare breed of vet indeed. From his practice in North Yorkshire, set in the lovely Howardian hills, he has looked after a number of zoos.

This show is a funny romp through the trials and tribulations of a modern 21st century James Herriot - from dealing with angry Polar bears, to how to spey your own lion on the kitchen table, the talk covers tales of success and woe when working with the fiercer creatures around.

Whilst being light and entertaining, Matt's talk also touches upon the more serious side of zoos, of conservation and how Matt as a zoo vet is involved.

Matt presents with a series of images showing his work with zoo animals - speying a lion, castrating a hippo, foot work on Oryx and much more. This is mixed with tales of the problems associated with working with these type of animals.

The 21st Century Ark

For more serious audiences, Matt Brash can present his talk about the work of zoos in conservation, education and research.
