2019 Turtle Health and Rehabilitation Symposium

17-18th September 2019; Gold Coast, Qld

In September, it will be time once again for the biennial Turtle Health and Rehabilitation Symposium. This year the event is moving away from North Queensland to the Gold Coast. 
The symposium will  focus on veterinarian science, research and rehabilitation practices for sea turtles. For all of those that attended the 'Building Bridges" workshop in Ballina last year, this Symposium will provide an opportunity to go further into the discussions and information shared in October and cover some of the topics that were requested in the follow-up. For everyone else, this will be a great chance to learn about the veterinarian techniques specific to  treating sea turtles and responsibilities and best practice in the rescue and rehabilitation of turtles.
The Symposium will be ideal for anyone already working or volunteering in turtle rescue, rehabilitation, treatment and health research, as well as those hoping to gain some expertise in these areas.

Workshops with a wildlife focus


WHA and AusVet Animal Health Services have previously run a 3-day wildlife focused Quantum GIS mapping workshop and 2-day Wildlife Epidemiology workshop.  These workshops were both a great success, not only providing participants with new skills but also an opportunity to exchange ideas with others working with wildlife in a variety of ways.

WHA will work with AusVet to run further workshops for wildlife professionals, so if you are interested in participating please let us know.
