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.
We will travel to the manatee rehabilitation area and view the current patients being treated at the hospital. You will experience manatee handling, monitoring, morphometric and diagnostics. We will also discuss current manatee rescue, rehabilitation and pathology issues
Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo features 56 acres of lush, natural habitats comprising seven main offers outdoor exhibits for more than 1,500 animals including the habitats from a Native Florida that includes the manatee hospital. Other exhibits areas: Asian Domain, Primate World, Manatee and Aquatic Center, Florida Wildlife Center, Free-Flight Aviary, Wallaroo Station children's zoo, and the new Safari Africa.
In 1972, a group of dedicated volunteers decided it was time to establish a permanent marine biology learning center in our area. The Sea-Orama, a mounted fish exhibit at Clearwater Marina, had been in storage for several years. Hoping for a larger exhibit, perhaps with live animals to observe, we were incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization under the name Clearwater Marine Science Center (CMSC). In 1978, the city of Clearwater agreed to donate our current facility, an abandoned water treatment plant, to CMSC.
The first exhibit room, featuring fish from the original Sea-Orama, was opened to the public in 1981. Over the next few years, thanks to individual and corporate donations and immense volunteer efforts, CMSC continued to grow. In the 1990's, as renovations continued to provide more public area and education programs, our name was changed to Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) to reflect the increasing level of community interaction. Today, Clearwater Marine Aquarium is an internationally respected center for animal care, public education and marine research.
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.
