Zoo, Exotics and Wildlife (ZEW)
The Zoo, Exotics, and Wildlife (ZEW) Club is devoted to promoting learning opportunities for students at Auburn’s College of Veterinary Medicine interested in the exotic animal field. Through lectures, labs, case discussions, group field trips and conferences, our club aims to meet the interests of our members. Our main focus is on wildlife, avian, reptile, exotic companion mammal and zoo medicine.
Principle activities, events, or programs:
ZEW events occur several times per month. Each month we strive to have 2 lecture meetings, 1 lab and 1 case discussion. In addition to our club meetings, we have opportunities daily for students to volunteer at our local Raptor Center and volunteer seasonally to rehabilitate turtles brought to the hospital.
How this group’s activities benefit the profession, university, and community:
Our mission is to provide students with a structured opportunity to gain education and hands-on experience with exotic animals above and beyond what is covered in the curriculum.
How to get involved with this group:
All ZEW Club members must be students at Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Members must pay dues ($20.00/semester or $35.00/year). Please contact us with any questions!
