My name is Carmen and I’ll be working as the head veterinarian in the clinic of Darwin Animal Doctors on the beautiful island Santa Cruz for the next six months!
My first group of volunteers have just left and I can say that we already did some very, good work! We helped a lot of dogs and cats: sterilizing them, treating them for parasites and giving much needed medical care to several emergencies both in our clinic and on the Island of Isabela. We also visited a horse farm in the Highlands of Santa Cruz and received a very special patient… a crippled piglet!
Starting up the clinic was a bit of a challenge, but after the first couple of weeks, everything is falling nicely into place. I can say: we are ready to go!
I’m very excited to be able to contribute to the welfare of animals on the Galapagos islands and very grateful for this amazing opportunity… providing free medical care (which is only possible through donations received from contributors, like you)!
Future activities will include assisting indigneous animals with Galapagos Nature Park and implementing our Education Curriculum… stay tuned for future updates.
