Loss of ACZM Diplomate, Greg Fleming

R. Scott Larsen  | Published on 3/14/2013

I am very sad to announce that on Saturday March 9th Dr. Greg Fleming  passed away unexpectedly of natural causes.   Greg was on a conservation medicine trip in Mozambique at the time.   In the weeks prior to Greg’s death, he had been working to help save critically endangered white rhinos in South Africa.  He was doing what he loved most.  With  the loss of Greg, we at Disney lose a loved family member, a great friend, a treasured colleague, and a fantastic veterinarian.  With the loss of Greg, we in the zoo profession lose a great friend, a treasured colleague, an amazing medical resource, and an impassioned champion of conservation and animal health care.  We will miss Greg deeply and painfully.   Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.


We will provide more details about services as we get them.


Your friend and colleague,
