The JMICAWE team have been very interested to hear about a new society recently launched at the R(D)SVS and look forward to hearing more about their activities
The ultimate goal for DVABS is to increase awareness and knowledge of animal behaviour. The society is planning to host talks and practical sessions on various topics of animal behaviour, from companion animals to zoo animals and everything in between, as well as distributing information about modern behaviour knowledge and research. The society hopes to increase interest in animal behaviour and promote behaviour as an integral part of veterinary medicine. They are also preparing a website with useful links and resources on animal behaviour, and a regular newsletter.
