The JMICAWE team and colleagues have just returned from delivering successful workshops at Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (KVASU) in India. Workshops ran for 4 days, starting with a day focussing on developing and promoting best practise for high welfare within veterinary clinics in India, and followed by workshops focussing on  wildlife conservation.


In the era where conservation science is emerging as one of the research priorities across the Globe, Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University is planning to identify the research priorities in this sector. The  International workshop on “Identifying Priority Areas in Wildlife Conservation and the Role of KVASU” began on 25th November 2014 at its Pookode Campus. Faculty and students of KVASU attended the Workshop, which was part of three years of multidisciplinary National and International collaborative ventures developed by KVASU in various areas including Wildlife science. Further collaborations and projects are now being planned in relation to improving animal welfare in the future.

KVASU has already established MoUs for collaboration with the Kerala Forest Research Institute, Kerala State Forest Department and the University of Edinburgh and has completed a collaborative student research project involving faculty of University of Calgary, Canada.
