Aims:

  •

  •  
  • Bullets003.gif To position South Africa as a leading country with regards to veterinary science and wildlife conservation.
  •  
  • Bullets003.gif To promote active debate and the exchange of ideas regarding veterinary involvement in topical wildlife issues.
  •  
  • Bullets003.gif To establish an international communication network between veterinary students.
  •  
  • Bullets003.gif To create an opportunity where international and local veterinary students can experience the theory in a practical "hands-on" environment.
  •  

 

To achieve these aims:

 

  • Bullets003.gif The symposium maintains a balance between lectures on pertinent veterinary issues and excursions enabling delegates to witness practical aspects of the topics discussed e.g. game capture and relocation, disease control, etc.
  •  
  • Bullets003.gif Lectures, talks and demonstrations are held at various conservation areas and research faculties to enable delegates to grasp the diversity of fauna and flora that wildlife veterinarians are expected to deal with.
  •  
  • Bullets003.gif Exposure to what happens behind the scenes in South African Nature Conservation.
  •  
  • ISWU has, over the last two decades, proved to be a highly successful instrument for the achievement of some of the above mentioned goals. We are planning, with your assistance, to build on the historical successes, and in doing so, make a substantial contribution to veterinary science and wildlife conservation, both locally and internationally.
