Abstract

In 2007, two different events for teaching principles in zoo and wildlife medicine and for introducing veterinary students to scientific work were organized, the “Zoo Research Camp 2007” at the Al Wabra Wildlife Preservation, Qatar, and the “First EAZWV Summer School” at Basle Zoo. Apart from support from the hosting facilities, events were organized by the Clinic of Zoo Animals, Exotic Pets and Wildlife of the Vetsuisse Faculty. The two events differed in concept – with more emphasis on research and data evaluation at the ZRC, and on lectures at the Summer School. Both events had in common that a limited group of students convened at a place different from their usual location, in a zoo setting, which was considered the key to their motivation and the success of the events. Here, we describe the two concepts in detail, also explaining the required commitments made by, and the benefits for, the participating hosts or organisations. We hope that other zoos will be open to host similar events in the future.
