Latin American Program

The Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center’s Latin America Program focuses on a variety of issues in South America, including the effects lead ammunition on waterfowl, mortality in southern right whales and health issues that threaten penguins, guanaco and albatross. The Program is led by Dr. Marcela Uhart. Also in Latin America, the UC Davis Students for One Health have established an evidence-based, interdisciplinary community health project and research platform in Nicaragua, where students travel annually and the Oiled Wildlife Care Network has formed a partnership in Ensenada, Mexico, where they are training and educating a team for oil spill response and wildlife rehabilitation.
