VSDW goes “Fauna International Wildlife/Exotic pet conference 10 – 12 Nov 2017”

September 12, 2017 VSDW Team

Beste studenten en geïnteresseerde,

 

Net zoals met het Congres bij Chester Zoo lijkt het ons leuk om ook een aantal mensen te verzamelen die mee willen naar het congres in Lissabon. Vorig jaar zijn 2 van onze bestuursleden ook geweest naar dit Congres, wat zeker een succes was. Wat meer informatie van de website van FAUNA (de VSDW van Lissabon):

 

The FAUNA International Conference is an anual event organized by the board of the FAUNA group (one of the Student’s Association groups of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Lisbon). Every year, we invite people from all over the globe to come to Lisbon and talk about exotic animals, wildlife and zoos.
The conference will be held during 3 days. Each of these will have a different topic:

  • 10th November - Exotic Animal Practice
  • 11th November - Conservation Medicine and Wildlife Health
  • 12 th November - Zoological, Aquarium and Wildlife Medicine

WARNING: The conference will be in English since the majority of the speakers is from a foreign country.

 
 
 
 
 

Zoals gezegd lijkt het ons dus leuk om een aantal mensen bij elkaar te verzamelen zodat we gezamenlijk die kant op kunnen vliegen + evt. verblijven in het zelfde hostel. Voor het programma scroll even naar onder op deze pagina of surf naar de event page op facebook (KLIK). Daar het congres vrijdag overdag al begint is het aan te raden om donderdag al te vertrekken. Dit is soms vrij goed te regelen met de kliniek verantwoordelijke indien je verteld waarom je vrijdag afwezig zou zijn (leg duidelijk uit dat het een congres is over wildlife en dat het een van de weinige is. Stel zelf voor om bijvoorbeeld donderdag of woensdag langer te blijven en extra te helpen met de avond/nacht dienst!!). Een kort overzicht van mogelijke vluchten en hostels (bron voor vluchten = www.kayak.com):
