It was a treat last month to travel to Africa and visit two of SeaDoc’s sister programs, the HALI Project and Gorilla Doctors, both of which are part of the Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Like SeaDoc, they are doing place-based, science-centered conservation work in special places – HALI in the Ruaha ecosystem in Tanzania and Gorilla Doctors in Rwanda, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo.
All three programs are focused on improving the health of ecosystems, wildlife, and the people who depend on them. It was fun to share our experiences using the One Health approach to solving complex problems that impact health and conservation. At SeaDoc, we couldn’t do the work we do without your help. Thank you.
In this letter, we also take you on a search for the fabled cutthroat trout and we introduce you to our summer interns.
