The International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) was founded in 2008 for the express purpose of providing a forum for scientists, environmental consultants, regulators and lawyers to share information regarding the use of environmental forensics.

The 2011 Cambridge conference (25 July 2011 to 27 July 2011) was a combination  of plenary presentations, technical sessions and workshops providing an opportunity for our students  to learn from environmental forensic experts practicing and/or studying in this field.

Four of our Forensic students, Leanne Adimi, Rebecca Lloyd, Emily Downs and Kerrie Baggs presented  a poster on Wildlife crime.  I gave a presentation and produced a paper on the same topic, my co-authors were Leanne Adimi and Rebecca Lloyd.  Emily Downs and Kerrie Baggs also contributed by helping on the research work for the presentation and paper.

Dr Stephen  Mudge,  whose company Exponent UK was the main organiser of the event, along with Dr Gwen O’Sullivan  from the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (SoGEES) at University of Plymouth were very pleased with the contributions of our students.

 Leanne Adimi, BSc Environmental Forensics said, “Just to say thank you so much, I had a great time in Cambridge.  It has been a great end to my studies.”
