Wild Sun Rescue Center, located in Costa Rica, offers a 4 week vet and pre-vet externship that focuses on the veterinarians role in conservation medicine. Follow our vets as they treat injured wildlife and give support to 3 very different conservation initiatives. You will participate and learn from a wildlife rescue center, a sea turtle protection project and a Scarlet Macaw reintroduction program. Our goal is to inspire you to be a voice for conservation and to show you how, as a future veterinarian, you can make a difference in saving wildlife and their habitats in all corners of the world.
We have specialized tracks for pre-vet and gap-year students, 1st & 2nd year vet students and 3rd & 4th year vet students.
About Wild Sun Rescue Center
Wild Sun Rescue Center is a non-profit organization located in Cabuya, Costa Rica. We are not only dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of our local wildlife but also to finding solutions to the problems they are facing.
Everyday we treat sick, injured and orphaned animals who are affected by various threats such as electrocution, dog and cat attacks, deforestation and illegal pet trade. Our primary goal is to release each animal back to the wild.
We complement our rescue and release with education and conservation, amplifying our efforts through the community at large. Our internships and vet and pre-vet externships allow us to inspire and have a greater impact.
