  • I took part in the Wildlife Medicine and Conservation Course with the Belize Wildlife and Referral Clinic following my first year of vet school. I was able to see and experience the treatment of wildlife, try new medical techniques, learn a lot about conservation in the face of human animal conflict and work with some truly inspiring individuals.

  • Dr. Isabelle and Justin have put together a well-rounded program that does a fantastic job of incorporating the important aspects of caring for wildlife in Central America. It is engaging, thought-provoking and brimming with new experiences, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the field.
