WAAZM helps you make the most of your vet school experience.  Here is a snapshot of just a few of the opportunities that WAAZM has organized for students:


Spring Break Manatee Trip

Each spring break WAAZM organizes a manatee trip that allows students to get up close and personal with some of the marine mammal and aquatic species that we learn so much about.  This trip includes a variety of activities including swimming with wild manatees in Florida, behind-the-scenes tours at some of the major research and medical facilities for marine life, and visits to wildlife parks.  Don't miss your chance to be a part of the fun!


Weapons and Darting Wetlab

Darting can be a very important aspect of zoological and wildlife medicine.  WAAZM's weapons and darting wetlab teaches students how to safely use darting equipment, aim properly, and other important aspects of weapons handling.  Students who have demonstrated their knowledge of weapon safety may even hold their own practice sessions.


Coral Reef Tank Management

The coral reef tank that is displayed in the veterinary school's lobby is managed and maintained entirely by students.  By helping maintain the tank, students can develop skills in water quality testing, identifying and fragmenting different types of corals, and managing coral health.  Maintenance shifts are scheduled and managed by the WAAZM aquarium representative.

 SCUBA training

These are just a few of the events and activities that WAAZM coordinates.  Please contact a WAAZM representative for more information on how to get involved!
