Centre Vétérinaire de la Faune Sauvage et des Ecosystèmes (CVFSE)

Description of the organisation:

The CVFSE is a wildlife rehabilitation centre in operation for more than 30 years and with strong veterinary skills. About 2000 native wild animals are admitted there annually from a range of terrestrial or aquatic species. It’s one of the lead organisations in France for wildlife rehabilitation, rehabilitation veterinary medicine and education regarding these both topics. Located on the French Atlantic coast in South Brittany, it experienced several large oil spills and other small accidents. The centre has collaborated with Sea Alarm since 2009 and then had the opportunity to take part in several European projects aiming to improve the wildlife branch of oil spill responses at a European scale. It’s currently the main member in France of the EUROWA Network.
