Husbandry of Australian Native Animals, in a clinic setting

Ashley Thomson

August 26th

7pm Melbourne time

Please check your local time

Did you know Australia leads the way with extinction rates of Mammals, and we have one of the smallest Mammal collections compared to other countries around the globe! 


Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you need to care for a native animal in your clinic and you’re not sure what to feed it? Or has a native animal been presented to the clinic and you’re not sure how to safely restrain it?


Sometimes we find ourselves in these situations where you may be required to care for these animals either, while waiting on local Wildlife rescue services to come collect them or your vet may simply want them to stay in hospital under observation.


This Webinar will cover basic capture and restraint techniques, food and water options and basic husbandry that can assist them during their stay, it will touch on a small portion of our most commonly presented native animals, and some not so common! Ashley has also put a “Conservation through Education” spin on her presentation, courtesy of her Zoo Keeping Heritage so there’s something for everyone to learn regardless of experience.
