Professionals Training, Pantanal 2022

Report by Maria Jimena Valderrama, veterinarian, from our partner organization Fundación Omacha

Thanks to Yaqu Pacha, I was able to travel from Bogota to Pantanal, Brazil, to participate in the 10th International Training Course for Wildlife Work, organized by the Tamandua Institute, for which I received a scholarship from FINN (Foundation for International Aid Animals).
During this course, I deepened my knowledge and skills for wildlife management in the wild. From capturing and sampling, clinical evaluation and field monitoring of different wildlife species, to in-depth discussion of animal health.
In addition, this meeting of different professionals working in conservation in Latin America was a place to discuss ideas, share knowledge and experiences in order to develop and strengthen strategies to address all the problems that arise in conservation medicine today.
