CPD by the Sea: An Afternoon at Ocean Park

The Ocean Park Veterinary Department and the HKVA are pleased to host a CPD event for veterinarians on Sunday, April 29. The event will include complimentary admission to Ocean Park, a catered lunch, and a lecture and demonstration on cetacean medicine.

Participants are welcome to enter the Park from 10am and will meet at the Veterinary Hospital at 12pm for lunch. After lunch, a 1-hour lecture will be given on cetacean medicine. This will be followed by a 1-hour demonstration at the Marine Mammal Breeding and Research Centre to show some of the techniques discussed during the lecture such as medical husbandry training, ultrasonography, gastroscopy, and dental work on bottlenose dolphins. On conclusion of the CPD sessions, participants are welcome to spend the rest of the day enjoying the Park.

Please note that while family members and friends are welcome to join participants in the Park before or after the CPD event, they will be responsible for their own entrance fee to the Park and all food and beverages.

The HKVA will donate any funds surplus to the cost of the event to Ocean Park Conservation Foundation Hong Kong, a non-profit organisation that is committed to advocating, facilitating and participating in effective conservation of Asian wildlife, with an emphasis on Chinese white dolphins and giant pandas, as well as their habitats through partnerships, fundraising, research and education.
