Event Details

Wildlife veterinarian, Dr. Deborah McCauley founded Bozeman based ngo, VIEW (Veterinary Initiative for Endangered Wildlife) in 2012 because of limited conservation work focused on the health of endangered wildlife in the field. With Dr. Gretchen Kaufman, former Director of Conservation Medicine at Tufts Vet School, VIEW is developing a wildlife health program for Nepal. VIEW has a field laboratory at a research station in Chitwan National Park which supports a local veterinarian. For the past few years VIEW has trained over 170 Nepali wildlife professionals, lead research to prove that dogs carry disease that kills tigers, captured endangered wildlife (including a man-eating tiger) and successfully treated wild tigers and rhinos while working with the Nepali government, the vet school and local partners to ensure sustainability. With Malaysian Rhinos having gone extinct his year, 3 White Rhinos left, and all wild Tigers teetering on the brink of extinction (3,200 left!), Dr. McCauley and Dr Kaufman will share the huge successes that VIEW is having in Nepal. VIEW is the only organization world-wide that solely focuses on endangered wildlife health.

If we continue to only approach conservation by addressing habit encroachment and poaching, as other conservation organizations do, we will simply have Parks devoid of wildlife.
