Dr Cobus
Raath

Dr Cobus Raath qualified with a BVSc degree from the University of Pretoria’s Onderstepoort Veterinary Faculty in South Africa in 1985. He spent the first 11 years of his career as the Head veterinarian for SANParks, stationed in Kruger National Park, where he developed many of the systems and management plans that are still in place today. After leaving SANParks to set up a private wildlife veterinary practice, he soon realized the necessity for the development of conservation medicines globally. Demonstrating his passion for his work and his vision for the future of conservation in South Africa and abroad, Dr Raath registered Wildlife Pharmaceuticals (Pty) Ltd in 1997. Today, Dr Raath remains actively involved in the wildlife veterinary industry, dedicating his expertise and time to numerous research projects and sharing his knowledge and skills with veterinarians around the world by hosting wildlife immobilisation courses

After completing a Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 2016 at the University of Pretoria, I completed a year of compulsory community service before being afforded the opportunity of working under the tutelage of Dr. Cobus Raath at Wildlifevets.com. After two and a half years, Dr. Ben Muller and I struck out on our own adventure with Wildscapes Veterinary & Conservation Services with a focus on local conservation projects and larger-scale conservation work abroad. Thus far we have managed to assist with projects in Mozambique, Tanzania, Malawi, Togo, Cote d'Ivoire, Nigeria, the Republic of Congo, Iraq, and the United States. Locally we have been involved in various conservation projects, dominated by the dehorning of over 500 white and black rhino, multiple carnivore relocations, and collaring various wildlife species for research. We have been involved with the training and lecturing of 300+ students and continue to do so. We are fortunate to work with a number of brilliant conservation organizations like The Giraffe Conservation Foundation, The Endangered Wildlife Trust, African Parks, Elephants Alive, and the Ivan Carter Wildlife Conservation Alliance to name a few. We look forward to expanding our boundaries and contributing wildlife veterinary expertise wherever it may be of benefit.

Dr Aleksandr Semjonov is a lecturer in veterinary anaesthesiology at the Estonian University of Life Sciences. He is currently Chief Clinical Officer, Chair of Clinical Veterinary Medicine and head of the University’s Animal Clinic. His research has focused on zoo and wildlife anaesthesiology and on investigating novel anaesthetic combinations in a number of species of wild animals. In 2021, he received his PhD in wildlife anaesthesiology. Dr Semjonov also works as a practicing anesthesiologist for zoo and wild animals around the world. He has been the chairman of the Veterinary Group of Eurasian Regional Association of Zoos and Aquaria since 2018 and has broad clinical and scientific experience in long-term anaesthesia of wild carnivores, giraffes and elephants. Dr Semjonov has collaborated scientifically with research institutions in Europe, South Africa, Russia, India and Japan.<br><br>

Dr Martine van Zijll Langhout

Her passion for wildlife and conservation took Martine to many parts of the world. She worked with most wildlife species, such as free-roaming gorilla's in Gabon, chimpansees in Cameroon and birds in Costa Rica. As an all-round wildlife vet in South Africa, she was responsible for the darting and anaesthesia of thousands of wild animals, including most African species and 1000+ white rhinoceroses. Currently she is Head Veterinarian at ARTIS Amsterdam Zoo and ECZM Diplomate in Zoo Health Management.
