In conjunction with Darwin Animal Doctors (DAD) and the Agencia de Regulacion y Control de la Bioseguridad para Galapagos (ABG), we sterilized 255 animals during our stay on these enchanting islands known for their unique biodiversity.
We will be returning to the Galapagos Islands in the spring of 2015.
From the 5th to the 25th of May 2014, the Foundation for Veterinary Aid International, the Bureau Vétérinaire du CEGEP de Sherbrooke and Darwin Animal Doctors provided free veterinary services to the dogs and cats of the Galapagos Islands. The team was made up of 2 veterinarians, 5 animal health technicians and 4 veterinary students. Several complete days were dedicated to sterilizations in order to control the dog and cat populations which endanger the exceptional and unique fauna of the islands by their predatory behaviour.
