What should you do if you find a baby bird out of its nest? Are there health risks if you come in contact with a raccoon?
People and wild animals are increasingly crossing paths, which can result in human-wildlife conflicts. AVC will present a community workshop entitled “Living with Wildlife” on Tuesday, May 22, from 7-8:30 p.m., Room 287N of The McCain Foundation Learning Commons, Atlantic Veterinary College, University of Prince Edward Island.
A team of experts will provide information and answer questions about the “do’s and don’ts” of dealing with wild animals. The speakers include Dr. Marion Desmarchelier, AVC Zoo, Exotic Animal and Wildlife Service; Dr. Heather Fenton, AVC Wildlife Pathology Resident; Chuck Gallison, PEI Department of Fish and Wildlife; and Dr. Adriana Nielsen, Intern, AVC Zoo, Exotic Animal and Wildlife Service.
Admission is free, and everyone is welcome. The workshop is part of AVC’s award-winning Community Workshop Series and is sponsored by AVC Friends & Family, the College’s recently established community-based volunteer advocacy group.
