Florida Keys Sea Turtle Workshop
December 2nd – December 4th 2016
Since its inception, the annual Florida Keys Sea Turtle Rehabilitation workshop, in partnership with the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST), has trained over 35 animal care specialists and veterinarians from 22 Caribbean countries. Many local vets have little or no experience with reptile medicine and this workshop provides them with the knowledge and skills to fill this gap. The workshop provides hands-on training in the medical treatment, rehabilitation and captive care of sea turtles, as well as a forum to discuss issues, cases and techniques.
