Josh Warren's Envirovet 2008 - Presentation
Envirovet is a program that focuses on ecosystem health and conservation. For the first two sessions, we were in Florida for four weeks. The two sessions included many lectures, group tasks, and labs (including a deer heard health survey) focusing on terrestrial ecosystems for 2 weeks and aquatic ecosystems for 2 weeks. The third portion of the trip was in a developing country, Tanzania. Here we had the opportunity to apply some of the things we had learned and to learn even more. We participated in many field exercises including wildlife tracking, visits to native villages, tuberculosis testing in cattle, water quality testing, health surveys of giraffe in Mikumi National Park, and many more. On top of that, I stayed for a couple more weeks to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
