Maun, Botswana Project - July 2011
Our international collaboration with the Maun Animal Welfare Society (MAWS) in Maun, Botswana began in 2011. MAWS runs a volunteer veterinary clinic in Maun that is dependent on visiting veterinarians to provide services to Maun and surrounding area. The domestic dog population has been affecting the local wildlife through hunting and the spread of disease. The work that MAWS does not only assists the domestic dog population control BUT also assists in the preservation of many wildlife species in Botswana. Our CAAT team flew to Africa in April to assist MAWS with their ongoing work with sterilization and vaccination of the domestic dog population. One of the main purposes of CAAT’s collaboration with MAWS is to share the knowledge CAAT has gained over the course of many projects over the past 6 years. Round table discussions were held between MAWS and CAAT to assist with ensuring that their critical program continues to be current, safe and efficient.
CAAT will be returning to Botswana in 2012 to continue our work with MAWS as they evolve and grow.
