I am thankful for the opportunity of participating in the 2018 ‘Intervention in Wild Animal Health’. The sessions were informative, to say the least. I was able to learn various ways of estimating wild animal population, a subject I was least informed in addition to learning various ways of physical and chemical restraint of animal species. As a veterinarian who is interested in disease processes, I was also able to learn on the use of GIS in disease outbreak investigation and I am keen on applying this knowledge on my future studies. To top it up, I was finally able to dart an animal. I was happy that I could immediately apply some of the knowledge I had acquired in the course.
Overall; I am glad that I was able to appreciate the role Veterinarians play in the management of protected areas. I would definitely recommend this course to fellow Kenyan veterinarians.
