After graduating from the Veterinary Technician course in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, I dreamed of learning and working more with exotic wild life. ARCAS Vet Program in Peten fulfilled more than I could have dream of. Arriving to the breathtaking but humid jungle took a bit of acclimatizing, but every ounce of sweat was worth it. In this course I learned proper and safe handling, wildlife medicine techniques, adequate nutrition, enclosure requirements and rehabilitation stages and much more of the multiple indigenous animals to northern Guatemala and surrounding areas. Learning these techniques and working alongside the veterinarians of ARCAS was a priceless experience. Between the passion, the knowledge and the experience of these veterinarians, I was flooded with excellent information and education. The hands on experience was phenomenal and more then I could have asked for. I really feel that the veterinarians of ARCAS have a massive amount of knowledge to share and spread. The research and time they have spent working with these animals did not go unnoticed. They are changing the world, making a difference one animal at a time. It's a beautiful thing! To be a part of such an amazing wildlife rehabilitation center was so fulfilling. The team there all work so hard and are all so passionate. This is a place I plan to revisit and volunteer again in the near future. ARCAS as a whole will forever hold a special spot in my heart.
