Studies on animal anatomy and physiology are undoubtedly essential in the training of professionals who aim to work with wildlife, whether wild or exotic. This basic knowledge is indispensable to prepare the clinical reasoning of veterinarians, the formulation of diets by zootechnicians or knowledge of the normality patterns for the species in the evaluation of an individual in the process of rehabilitation by a biologist.


  The veterinarian and professor of the course Iago Junqueira says:

         "Sem dúvida, o What I hear most from my interns and colleagues is how they wish they had had didactic and complete courses on content focused on wild animals at graduation, but it seems to be in a distant future from the reality of universities today..."

  With that in mind, IES Educa decided to go ahead and create its own course in discipline format to supply this  gap  of the training in new professionals. A new semester is about to start and you're not being offered the course you wanted so badly: WE HAVE IT! Let's register! Our course, although it doesn't offer you elective credits, helps you A LOT to complete your extra-curricular hours, adding more than 80 hours of course during this next semester. Let's learn about wild animals from the beginning?


  In this new course we will approach in a taxonomic order the main anatomical and physiological characteristics of wild species, covering topics on mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates.

  Our objective with this course is to contextualize with the knowledge acquired in college with which will be used by the professional who will work with wildlife in the future (or who already works today).

  The target audience for this course are students of veterinary medicine, biological sciences and zootechnics, but graduates and professionals who work directly with fauna are welcome, not necessarily with the aforementioned professions.
