Gap Africa Projects Warns Against Insufficient Veterinary Work Experience

18 September, 2013: Those seeking complete and well-rounded veterinary work experience may not find it in a city zoo, Gap Africa Projects warns. Instead, for a truly fulfilling learning experience, nothing beats serving as an intern under the direct supervision of highly experienced veterinarians in the field in Africa. Veterinarians working in wildlife conservation, specifically in Africa’s game reserves, are exposed daily to the kind of challenges that are not present anywhere else, hence there is plenty of opportunity to learn every possible aspect of caring for wild animals. Due to the demanding nature of a field veterinarian’s job, especially in a place like the Shamwari Game Reserve in Africa, there is a constant availability of opportunity for hands-on experience with a great diversity of tasks to learn. 

As far as veterinary work experience is concerned, therefore, joining the day-to-day activities of wildlife veterinarians in the field means the intern will be able to treat and handle an astonishing variety of wildlife, from the smallest and gentlest mammals or birds to the utterly intimidating big cats such as the lions, tigers, and leopards. The interns, under strict and careful supervision from the experienced vets will also be exposed to wild environments, which thereby equips them with a range of invaluable skills and methods that may not be available in more clinical or urban settings. 

Gap Africa Projects, which was founded based on a genuine concern for the conservation of endangered species, as well as a deep passion for Africa’s beauty, is one of the UK’s leading organisers of Africa tours and gap year stints. The company’s mission is to provide people who are on a sabbatical leave or on a gap year with a deeply meaningful way to travel to Africa while also making a positive contribution to the continent’s protection and development. Those who are seeking excellent veterinary work experience may choose among the company’s several current gap year projects.
