VetCT has announced it will be matching donations made to Wildlife Vets International (WVI) during the London Vet Show. 

Visitors to the company's stand will be invited to make a donation.

Anyone not attending the show, but who nevertheless wants to support this charity's work, will be able to do so via social media. 

VetCT says it is hoping to raise a total of £6000 to fund the training of local veterinary teams in wildlife medicine.

Head of Communications, Liz Barton said: “We are learning so much about the far-reaching and important work of WVI through our charity partnership - how they are helping to preserve biodiversity and support the conservation of species, which is absolutely key to global sustainability.

"Education is core to everything we do at VetCT, and we are excited to be raising funds that will be used to support local vets and nurses to undergo comprehensive training in wildlife medicine, enabling the dissemination of knowledge and expertise to support conservation projects globally.”

Olivia Walter, Executive Director of WVI, said: “We are incredibly excited at the prospect of launching our education initiative with the support of VetCT and LVS delegates.

"Training local veterinary teams to provide exceptional care to wildlife is vital to the longevity and success of conservation projects.

"In addition to raising funds and awareness of our work, the direct clinical support from the VetCT experts is helping us to continue providing much needed veterinary input to conservation efforts around the world.”

WVI representatives, including Matthew Rendle RVN and Dr Asumah of the Wildlife Division, Forestry Department, Government of Ghana, will be on VetCT stand D44 at 12:30-1:30pm on Friday 17th November.

The charity will also be on Millpledge Veterinary stand J60, which also supports the work of WVI.
