Vet Courses

Facing a rapidly changing future in conservation

A long term vision of conservation goals is necessary in order to protect endangered and threatened species in the Amazon Rainforest. As we work to save endangered wildlife in the present, we must also prepare for the challenges that future generations of conservationists will face in the Amazon of tomorrow.

RAREC's Veterinary Courses are designed to provide students in biology and veterinary sciences with the practical knowledge and experience that they will need, to become conservationists in a rapidly changing world. A multi-layered approach to training that encompasses the many diverse and unique aspects of conservation programs focused in this extremely sensitive region of our planet.

 At RAREC, students learn at an operating, fully licensed wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center. They work directly with rescued specimens that require specialized care, and help our Center's animal residents recover with the ultimate goal of release back into the wild.

The courses focus on the latest protocols and techniques currently being applied in the care and rehabilitation of different wildlife species. The courses include participating in a spay and neuter campaign of domestic animals, since abandoned domestic animals are a serious problem in the city of Iquitos.
If you are part of a group of at least 4 people, the 5-day course can be opened on the dates you want and can be part of your stay as an internship or volunteer. For more information about the Veterinary Courses offered at RAREC, please contact
