South Africa has one of the most diverse and exciting populations of wildlife in the world. Our Vet Experience, Vet Student, and Game Capture programs work with several highly qualified and experienced wildlife vets who enjoy teaching students about their profession and the incredible animals they work with every day.
The world is now full of zoos, wildlife sanctuaries and protected national parks whose main purpose is to treat and defend those that are in true need of human intervention. It is a controversial topic but regardless of personal opinion, the fact remains that qualified veterinarians are vital to maintaining the health and welfare of all captive animals.
It is important for every pre-vet student to gain sufficient practical exposure to veterinary medicine before applying to vet school. Understanding the basics at an early stage not only helps them get into vet school, but also makes them more confident vet students and highly competent veterinarians.
Animals are involved in many different activities which we carry out daily. They are responsible for maintaining the ecological cycle in a stable manner. Many students lack sufficient veterinary experience both in undergrad and in vet school. Students may gain insight through our programs to boost their career and also get to know the common issues that affect animals.
