This mini-course is part of a collection of modules in the Wildlife Vet series.
We help vet students get EMS credits without travelling, by presenting online courses for you to do at your own pace.
The topics include – Animal Behaviour; Animal Identification and Tracking Techniques; Anti-Poaching; Antibiotics and Supportive Medication; Capture Equipment and Methods; Conservation and Wildlife Education in the Community; Game Reserve Management; Modern Conservation; Orphan Rearing; Parasites; Ranger and Vet Stories; Rhino dehorning, poaching etc; Safety Practices; Tranquilizers, Sedatives and Opioids, Sanctuaries, Rehabilitation and Rescue Centres; Wildlife and Field Management.
These courses are designed as an online version of some of the hands-on experiences available with projects like Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, Amakhala Game Reserve and Zululand Rhino Orphanage, and the hands-off, conservation support experiences available with projects like Kariega Conservation and Sibuya Wilderness Experience – where volunteers and students will be involved with reserve and sanctuary management and wildlife conservation in South Africa.
“Another fantastic course and so incredibly heartfelt – I could feel the emotion in every word. This only drives my determination to advocate for these magnificent animals in any way possible in the hopes that our children will get the opportunity to experience the majesty of a rhino.” ~ Nirvana, University of Edinburgh
“I have really enjoyed the two rhino courses. They were really engaging and informative and I feel like I am now much more aware of the wider complications when it comes to looking after wild rhinos and managing their population. There is so much more to consider than I first thought, and I now understand how vital the vets’ role is in protecting this iconic and unique species.” ~ Jessica, University of Edinburgh
“I want a pursue a career as a wildlife vet so feel that this course has been invaluable. I absolutely loved it!” ~ Chloe, Royal Veterinary College, London
