SPC SCHOOL OF VETERINARY TECHNOLOGY

St Petersburg College is on our summer session which is busy for both faculty and student as the semester is only 10 weeks long     

Trish Gorham, Annette Poirier, Ariel Gilpin and Dr Megan Branham traveled in May to Zimbabwe for another service-learning opportunity. This program focuses on primary wildlife management and conservation initiatives in 3 regions of Zimbabwe, namely Antelope Park (Gweru), Hwange National Park, and Victoria Falls.  While there we worked with Veterinarians for Animal Welfare Zimbabwe (VAWZ) and participated in 2 spay/neuter clinics where we performed at least 30 procedures and vaccinated over 100 dogs for rabies which is endemic in that region. We were able to participate in procedures with Sabal Antelope as well as Lions. We worked in a village near Victoria Fall to secure the bomas for their cattle as they currently have 3 prides of lions living outside the village.

We are currently enrolling for fall classes and expect to have a large freshman class and anticipate graduating one of the largest classes since Covid.
