Event description

Description

We welcome existing and prospective Fauna Rescue SA members, veterinary professionals and the general public. Workshops are a good opportunity to meet other members. Our guest speakers at workshops are all volunteers who have given up their time to talk to us.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

The reptile workshop is designed to give new carers and rescuers a general understanding of lizards and turtles, common reasons for coming into care, treatment plans as well as basic husbandry and housing requirements. The workshop will consist of both theory and practical components with a chance for attendees to handle live reptiles. The workshop will cover -

  • Permits and classifications of reptiles
  • Common reptile species
  • How to safely rescue reptiles
  • Handling of reptiles
  • Physical assessment of reptiles
  • Common injuries and problems
  • Housing and husbandry
  • Diet and Feeding
