Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue ( ) is seeking a veterinarian for its chimpanzee sanctuary in Cameroon’s Mbargue Forest. The sanctuary is currently home to 77 rescued chimpanzees ranging in age from one year to over 50 years. Most are adults and adolescents. Duties include monitoring the health status of all residents on a daily basis, treating illnesses and injuries in consultation with the supervising veterinarian (in person or by phone or text when she is not on site), and helping train a Cameroonian veterinarian who has recently graduated.
Credentialed veterinarian (DVM) with solid experience, self-confidence and humility who is ready to learn and willing to share their skills. While experience with chimpanzees is highly preferred, we recognize that many skills are transferrable from one species to another and other skills can be learned on the job. The position is currently open and requires a minimum commitment of six months. English fluency is required and French language skills are an additional asset. Start/end dates are negotiable.
