In this Virtual Field Talk, we don’t need to travel any further than the beautiful state of Maryland to hear from Dr. Cindy P. Driscoll, State Fish & Wildlife Veterinarian for Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR)! Dr. Driscoll is the first wildlife and aquatic veterinarian for the state and works at the Cooperative Oxford Laboratory in Oxford, MD. She works with all wildlife species in our state, and in her Virtual Field Talk, she will discuss some of her projects involving marine mammals and sea turtles, as well as terrestrial wildlife. Dr. Driscoll describes her upcoming talk below:
“You’re a veterinarian and you work with …WHAT?” Yep, that is the response I usually receive. Veterinarians work on many issues and species – including regulatory medicine, small animals, zoo animals, but also free-ranging wildlife.”
