More about this event

 With six of seven sea turtle species occurring in Australian waters, this presentation will cover common diseases, medical problems and treatments in sea turtle cases that have been presented to local animal hospitals and often transferred to a veterinary facility specializing in sea turtles. Common problems include multiple issues like boat strike, buoyancy or floating problems, and tumors, many of which require further examination in order to provide specific diagnostic services and treatments.


Learning Objectives - Participants will understand: 
1. Common diseases seen in wild sea turtles; 
2. Procedures for diagnosing turtle diseases;  
3. How these diseases may be treated. 


About the speaker: Dr. Hayakijkosol completed his BVSc in Thailand, after which he pursued a MSc and PhD in aquatic animal diseases. He has experience lecturing and tutoring in aquatic animal subjects in School of Veterinary Sciences at James Cook University, Queensland, Australia and has been involved in sea turtle hospital work in Townsville, Australia as an aquatic specialist consultant.
