Are you fully prepared before you head out to conduct your wildlife field work? Are all the students or other research staff trained and capable to perform euthanasia should an animal be injured or found moribund? Planning and training to relieve suffering of vertebrate animals should be part of every protocol submitted for IACUC review prior to conducting field work. In this webinar, Tracy Thompson, IACUC Chair and Attending Veterinarian at the National Park Service, will review methods that can be used in the field to euthanize injured or ill wildlife, in the hope it will never be needed.
