WHERE WE WORK
VIEW'S FIRST SUCCESS: NEPAL
Since 2012, VIEW has partnered with local veterinarians, technicians, students and organizations to provide the knowledge, skills and resources to help Nepal’s wildlife professionals best serve their important wildlife populations. However, it is also vital to have proper tools and equipment so that veterinarians can implement the education and training they receive. VIEW has been instrumental in the development of a diagnostic laboratory, providing medical equipment and supplies, helping to build the new wildlife health hospital and construction of special holding facilities. Wildlife Health protocols and policy recommendations have been adopted by the Nepalese government and national parks.
VIEW trained and educated 200 wildlife professionals (veterinarians, biologists, students, and park rangers) within the conservation community of Nepal on geographically-related wildlife health and safe capture techniques through delivering workshops, courses, and one-on-one training.
Tools & Technology
VIEW helped to build and provide the tools necessary to implement and maintain disease surveillance programs. VIEW created facilities to support wildlife health by providing expert consultation and recommendations for the wildlife hospital project in Sauraha, Chitwan National Park and the development of the wildlife disease investigation laboratories, and necropsy suite. VIEW also provided the tools in the field including everything from capture kits and diagnostic equipment to a digital surveillance system.
VIEW also initiated the development of the Wildlife Health Information System (WHIS) for Nepal.
