Belize Zoo keepers learn new techniques from Midwestern University Vet School

Posted: Friday, July 27, 2018. 8:47 am CST.

BBN Staff: This week, the Belize Zoo welcomed Dr. Ivy Thomas-Alcala and a delegation from the Midwestern University Vet School in Phoenix, Arizona.

Nine veterinary students from the university assisted animal managers at the zoo with various procedures and wellness checks.

The delegation shared vet techniques with the zoo staff so that they can improve wildlife care of the animals.

A statement from the Belize Zoo explained, “Visiting wildlife vets to Belize, from well-respected institutions, add vital input which serves to assist wildlife managers, as well as the species they provide care for regularly.”

During the vet team visit, tapirs were examined, an injured roadside hawk received a surgery, and the harpy eagles received important beak trims at the newly upgraded Belize Zoo Vet Clinic.

Dr. Ivy Cowell also provided assistance to the Belize Raptor Center and the Belize Bird rescue center.

Cowell and the vet students also visited the Green Iguana project in San Ignacio Town.
