Wild about exotics? The new CAW Wildlife and Exotics Congress is for you!

The College of Animal Welfare is delighted to be expanding its range of virtual congresses further with their Wildlife and Exotics Congress

The College of Animal Welfare‘s Wildlife and Exotics Congress will be held online on Thursday 19 October 2023.

The congress is specifically aimed at veterinary nurses seeking to expand their knowledge and expertise in the care of wildlife and exotic animals.

Whether you are already a wildlife enthusiast looking to learn more or you work in general practice and come across these patients but feel that you need a little more confidence to care for them to the best of your ability, the Wildlife and Exotics Congress is for you!

With the growing importance of wildlife conservation and the increasing popularity of exotic pets, the veterinary profession is facing new challenges in providing top-tier care for these unique and diverse creatures.

As such, the Wildlife and Exotics Congress agenda has been created to cover a variety of different species, including the care of British wild fauna, triaging the avian patient, blood sampling and common medications of rabbits, dealing with reptiles in general practice and nursing aquatic patients.

Throughout the day, as well as listening to presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to interact with speakers through live Q&A sessions, network with each other and take part in a virtual exhibition.

“Our goal with the Wildlife and Exotics Congress is to empower veterinary nurses with the knowledge and skills needed to make a positive impact in the lives of wildlife and exotic animals,” said Claire Gregory, events manager at The College of Animal Welfare.

“By bringing together leading experts in this field, we aim to create a platform for continuous learning and development”.

Registration for the One Day Wildlife and Exotics Congress is now open, and early bird discounts are available until Friday 25 August 2023.
