World Vets IVM field project; Utila, Honduras 2018
All of World Vets projects provide an enriching volunteer experience. However, in 2019, we will have more opportunities available, as part of our
veterinary field projects, that will allow for teaching/training opportunities for fellow volunteers in relation to performing clinical tasks and duties. These volunteer teaching/training trips will specifically be marked with a graduation cap icon, and can also be found
Upcoming projects marked with a graduation cap icon are also ideal for DVM's and LVT's that enjoy working with and teaching students, and/or for those who have participated as instructors on our
International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program*.
*The IVM Program, World Vets official student program, will resume summer 2019
World Vets continues veterinary project benefiting wildlife in Honduras
World Vets exotics team: Roatan, Honduras 2018
Since 2015 World Vets has been partnered with Maya Key, located in Roatan, Honduras, to facilitate annual health exams and other needed veterinary services for the wildlife/exotic species under their care. At their facility they house animals that were rescued from the illegal wildlife trade, were previously owned pets or zoo residents and/or come from other undesirable circumstances.
This past month we continued our wildlife/exotics project, though have now expanded our efforts to benefit more animals located at other facilities on the island.
This initiative not only helps to maintain a healthy animal collection but also provides an opportunity for students to gain exposure to zoo medicine.
We have an upcoming volunteer opportunity as part of this project in March 2019! Student positions are still available - find out more

Seal pup season is in full swing in Puget Sound and World Vets needs your help to support veterinary response for marine mammal stranding cases. Since 2017, World Vets has been providing veterinary services for marine mammals in Washington state and summer is our busiest time of year. To increase our capacity to help these animals, we have recently opened an urgent care unit and 24 hour holding facility at our Washington headquarters.
World Vets works in cooperation with local, state and federal agencies and provides veterinary support to stranding networks in Washington, especially in the south sound. We provide beach response for health assessments and triage, stabilizing treatments, referral to rehab centers, relocation and release when indicated and in-clinic urgent care. We also provide necropsy assistance on animals that have died to help study the health situation of marine mammals.
