Marine Mammal Medic Training for Vets and RVN’s

Are you a Veterinary Surgeon or Registered Veterinary Nurse?

If so, we would be thrilled to have your support!

Locating veterinary staff with knowledge of marine mammal medicine can be very challenging and is complicated by the fact that incidents can happen at any time and on any part of the coastline. So the more vets and RVNs we can get involved, the better the chance someone suitably experienced can attend these complex animals.

If you are interested in supporting us, we would suggest that you attend one of our Marine Mammal Medic courses to learn the basics of seal and cetacean rescue. 

From there, we are currently working on a whole range of exciting additional resources which will be accessible to all vets and RVNs who are qualified BDMLR medics – including further talks, quizzes and practical workshops. These will be made available in the near future.
