Why Wildlife Conservation Medicine?

Wild Spirit mi ha permesso di realizzare un sogno meraviglioso, quello di sentirsi parte di qualcosa di più grande, speciale e unico. Penso sia fondamentale investire nella medicina conservativa, ricercando ogni giorno metodiche nuove che ci permettano di proteggere e sostenere la ricerca degli specialisti del settore, sensibilizzando le persone a comprendere il delicato equilibrio tra ambiente, uomo e animale.

Why Wild Spirit?

Wild Spirit è un'organizzazione che svolge un ruolo importante nella medicina conservativa e nella salvaguardia delle specie in via d'estinzione. Collaborando con un'equipe di professionisti, permette a studenti e neolaureati di medicina veterinaria di toccare con mano il vero lavoro svolto sulla fauna africana. Un'esperienza indimenticabile che lascia un'impronta nel cuore e nell'anima di chi partecipa.

NOI PSAROUDAKIS

GREECE

Veterinarian & Biological sciences (focus on conservation ecology)

Current job: Final year veterinary student-University of Bristol

Languages: Greece, English

Contact: noi@thewildspirit.com

Why Wildlife Conservation Medicine?

African wildlife has been my passion since a very young age and the driving force behind becoming a veterinarian. My first degree was largely focused on conservational ecology, highlighting the importance of understanding species as a whole (biology, behaviour, habitat,threats). At vet school we don’t often get taught about wildlife in that sort of detail. Wild spirit is not just a two week programme where you get to work with some of the most amazing species in the world. It also actively educates you on conservation medicine and the sort of things you can expect from being a wildlife veterinarian. All the vets are wonderful and ensure that you gain the most of it.

Why Wild Spirit?

Wild spirit will make you fall in love with wildlife. It gives you a glimpse into a whole other world. One where you can make a difference. You will leave Wild Spirit motivated, educated and changed for the better.

Why Wildlife Conservation Medicine?

Because Wild Spirit is one of those companies that will leave a mark on the earth, that seeks to change things and teach us to be more humble and respectful of wildlife. We can learn a lot from Wild Spirit and with Wild Spirit, and I recommend everyone to take advantage of the great opportunity it offers us.

Why Wild Spirit?

Because now is when we can change things and bet on the conservation of wildlife, because if we do not, there may be a day when it is too late, a day when there is nothing to conserve. We have to sensitize people and train them to be part of this change and to improve as much as we can the quality of life of wildlife.
