By BBN Staff: Over the last two weeks, The Belize Zoo (TBZ) hosted Cornell Vet School and the Milwaukee County Zoo.
The teams engaged in training techniques with the staff at the Belize Zoo.
Cornell Vet School has been a working partner with TBZ for well over five years.
This year, local veterinarians and members of the Forest Department joined in the training.
Jaguars, tapirs and howler monkeys were just a few of the animals who benefited from the vet training clinic.
Since the zoo opened its Vet Clinic in 2018, upgrades there have made necessary animal procedures able to occur with ease and high degree of professionalism.
The Milwaukee County Zoo worked with zoo staff introducing innovative animal behavior methods which leads to enrichment activities for the animals, providing them with a day of play, exploration, and inquisitive experiences.
“Collaboration with these fine experts leads to an empowered zoo staff, and a sound profile for the animals calling The Belize Zoo their home,” a statement from TBZ said.
