The College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida
The College of Veterinary Medicine at UF is part of both the Health Science Center, which encompasses six colleges, and the University’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS). It is Florida’s only veterinary college, offering comprehensive service to the public through a four-fold mission – teaching, research, extension and patient care. Areas of strength at the college include: comparative medicine, food animal medicine, laboratory animal medicine, aquatic medicine, environmental medicine, large animal medicine and surgery and small animal medicine and surgery.
Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park
The park's resident manatees make the first-magnitude spring their home, along with fresh and salt water fish that are free to come and go. The Fish Bowl, a floating underwater observatory, offers an unequalled, below-the-surface view of manatees and fish in the crystal clear spring environment.
Visitors can see West Indian manatees every day of the year from the park's underwater observatory in the main spring. The park showcases native Florida wildlife, including manatees, black bears, bobcats, white-tailed deer, American alligators, American crocodiles, and river otters. An elevated boardwalk system provides a great view of the wildlife including a cougar, bears, bobcats, otters, deer, alligators and a wide variety of wading birds, birds of prey and songbirds. Homosassa Springs is one of the a very few places where you can see endangered West Indian manatees, Whooping Cranes, Red wolves, Key Deer, and a Florida panther up close. The female river otter has a new pup and is happy to show it off to visitors.
The Felburn Wildlife Care Center is a state of the art facility.
Field tours that provide a working knowledge of husbandry are considered integral for any individual working in aquatic animal medicine. This course includes a hands-on training at a manatee facility in Homosassa Springs. Transportation will be provided to all field tour sites.
