  2. The DAD Experience Throught the Eyes of the Volunteers

    “Volunteering for Darwin Animal Doctors is an experience like no other!
    Come and see things and work in ways you wouldn’t at home. It is a great learning experience for qualified vets and students alike. Improve your clinical skills, learn Spanish and help a fantastic cause at the same time.
    All of this in the unique place that is the Galapagos Islands! It is an experience you will never forget!”

    Laura Harvey. England.

    “We are two veterinary students coming from Norway and we were looking for some hand-on experience for our final year. Galapagos seemed like the perfect destination for the combination of both travel and work. As volunteers we have both gained experience in basic clinical work as well as exploring the unique islands and biodiversity of the Galapagos. We would certainly recommend this to anyone who wants to achieve clinical experience with small animal as well as experiencing the joys of traveling.”

  3. Another Success for DAD!

    unnamed (1)Our Lush-funded, HEART-driven formal education program takes flight in the Galapagos! The Isabela Oceanographic Institute has begun teaching DAD’s education program to their Galapagos students, and we couldn’t be more proud of the results!

    From Amanda Lyons, Isabela Oceanographic Institute:

    “Today Sara Luz and I did the education program with the 4th and 5th grade students. It went great and the students loved it! It was one of the first times that I’ve seen every student attentive! We even brought in Sara’s dog, Frieda, as well as props (bed, dog dish, leash, harness, collar, shampoo, dog treats, frontline, vitamins, parasite treatment, brush, etc) to use and show the students. We did a whole presentation about how to use each and why its important. We even had Danny, head director here in isabela from the ABG, there to help us with some important details on being a responsible owner and help answer some questions. We handed out the program tshirts, which all the students LOVED!”

    Stay tuned as we’ll post photos of the program as they come from Galapagos!
