Wildlife Care Conference

Thank you!

Join us for a full day of virtual wildlife education! Continuing education and training is an important component of our mission. We believe helping wildlife professionals experience learning in new and different ways results in better educational outcomes.  This virtual format allows you to stay for the entire day or come and go for the presentations you find most interesting.  This year we are gearing up for an amazing lineup of presenters! We can't wait!

This year our Keynote speaker is Dr. Sara Ferguson from the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. She is a wildlife veterinarian and GCF’s Conservation Health Coordinator.  She graduated from the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary  Medicine and is qualified with the Namibia Veterinary Council. Sara leads the Conservation Health Initiative which approaches giraffe conservation from a veterinary science and conservation medicine perspective. In this role, Sara coordinates veterinary support for GCF’s field operations, evaluates the best immobilization practices for giraffes, addresses disease and health issues in wild giraffe populations, and assists in the development of new technology for  satellite tracking and methods for conservation translocations. She also  works collaboratively with partners, such as the University of Namibia  School of Veterinary Medicine, to enhance capacity-building opportunities for the next generation of Africa’s wildlife veterinarians. Sara is an associate researcher for Naples Zoo at  Caribbean Gardens, Florida, which generously sponsors her position.

Join us for a full day of virtual learning! We can't wait to see you there!
