World Vets Carries out First-Ever Exotics Project

This past week World Vets carried out a pilot project that provided veterinary attention and care for wildlife. As part of this endeavor, we partnered with a wildlife rehabilitation center located in Roatan, Honduras, that takes in injured, orphaned or confiscated wildlife.

Our team was led by World Vets field service veterinarian Dr Mike Corcoran. Dr Corcoran is not only a wildlife / exotics vet but is also a certified aquatic veterinarian through the World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association.

Throughout the week, our volunteers attended a variety of animals including three distinct species of monkey, jaguars, ocelots, and an assortment of exotic birds. They provided general examinations, dental cleaning , sexing, alongside many other services.

Photos will soon be available on our website!

Caribbean Sterilization Campaigns Completed

During the month of March, World Vets had two veterinary teams deployed in the Caribbean. During this deployment we operated free sterilization and animal health campaigns. Our services benefited animals in both Roatan, Honduras and Nevis, located in the West Indies.

We'd like to thank our volunteers, local partners, and their supporters, as well as Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their continual support of our animal welfare efforts.

Big Announcement Coming Soon!

At World Vets we strongly believe in the One Health concept in which the health of animals, people and the environment are inextricably linked. Consequently, we strive to not only help animals but people and the communities in which they live. We also value our volunteers and seek to provide them with unique opportunities and experiences.

Over the last couple of months, we have been working on the development of a new and exciting venture that seeks to join  these things. As such this new undertaking will not only provide diverse learning opportunities for both students and professionals, but also contribute to our One Health efforts.  

We are anxious to share this new chapter of World Vets! Look out for our big announcement coming soon!
