CCF’s Executive Director Dr. Laurie Marker and CCF’s Assistant Director for Strategic Communications and Illegal Wildlife Trade, Patricia Tricorache are in Somaliland visiting Dhoobi and Veepi, the two cubs rescued last July.
They also visited Dean of the Veterinary School at Hargeisa University to find ways in which we can collaborate to provide veterinary care to confiscated wildlife. Our animal caretaker Neju is a 4th-year student there. The rest of the day was spent meeting with the Minister of Environment and Rural Development, the Hon. Shukri Ismail to review and move forward with agreements we’ve made over the last year regarding illegal wildlife trade.
