Launching a New Partnership between Vanier College and CCF

From February to June 2023, ten Vanier College students from the Montreal area will travel to Namibia to launch on a new collaboration initiative with CCF.

The students are enrolled in Environmental and Wildlife Management (EWM) and Animal Health Technology (AHT) programs and have been selected to participate in a student mobility project funded by Colleges and Institutes Canada via the Global Skills Opportunity / Expérience compétences mondiales.

☑️ AHT students will spend 5 weeks working in the CCF clinic as veterinary technicians

☑️ EWM students will spend 6 weeks interning in the ecology department as well as working on husbandry of cheetahs and livestock guarding dogs.

🇨🇦 Vanier College is extremely excited to launch their partnership with CCF by sending out this first crew of students to initiate this 4-year project. And we are very happy to see Canadian youth gaining field experience from a world class conservation organization at CCF Namibia. 🇨🇦
