The Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine’s “Wildlife Aquatics Zoo and Exotic Animal Medicine Club” (WAZE) invites NU students to attend the annual Spring Symposium. While the event is geared mostly toward veterinary students, the experts will be speaking on topics that will be accessible and fascinating to anyone interested in veterinary medicine and/or conservation issues!
The Symposium will take place at Tufts Veterinary Campus in North Grafton, MA on Saturday, April 27th 2013.
This year’s topic is “Human Impacts of Wildlife and Exotics: The Good, the Bad and the Unknown.” Our human footprint on this planet is huge. Through lectures and wetlabs, this year’s Symposium will explore many different types of impacts that humans have on wildlife, aquatic, and exotic species. The Symposium will also emphasize the role that veterinary medicine can play in improving conservation and welfare efforts. Topics Include:
· The Ornamental Fish Industry
· Domestic cat impacts on wildlife populations
· Best Practices for Pet and Rehab Turtle Husbandry
· Large Whale Disentanglement and At-Sea Sedation
