It is with profound sadness that I am writing to let you know of the tragic
death of my friend and colleague, Dr Richard Zann, his wife and daughter who
died in the fires in Kinglake on Saturday. His son Christopher is safe and
being cared for by friends.

It is our Department's  hope to establish an academic prize or scholarship
in memory of Richard's profound and lasting contribution to science; in
particular ornithology.

At this stage we are unable to provide details of funeral or memorial

I will send a subsequent note around BARD when details of arrangements
become clearer.
