Young "Veterinarians" at TRC

This week was our "Raptor Vet" summer camp at The Raptor Center, for ages 9-11. Our campers learned the process of raptor rehabilitation from admission to release.  In the first photos, Dr. Devin Tunseth, one of TRC's clinical interns, used a stuffed bald eagle to demonstrate some of the parts of a raptor patient that are examined.

The last two photos are drawings from our campers.  The activity was intended to encourage observation skills, which are very important to a veterinarian who is examining a patient.  Some of our education winged ambassadors were used as the "models."  The campers came up with some very detailed drawings, as well as very skillful perceptions of the birds' anatomy.
