Abstract

There are many boundaries which may hinder the ability of veterinarians to contribute effectively to wildlife conservation initiatives. This paper discusses veterinary educational initiatives at Murdoch University that are moving disciplinary, institutional, cultural, experiential and educational boundaries to train veterinary students and graduate veterinarians in wildlife, zoo and conservation medicine. The collaborative partnership with the Veterinary Department at Perth Zoo, which resulted in the establishment of several of these educational initiatives, will be discussed.
