The Luke Gamble Vet Adventures Interview

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:Hi Luke and thanks so much for your time.Congratulations on being a father for the third time and dragging yourself away from changing nappies to chat to me!不管怎样,我一直在看你的兽医冒险,欣赏你正在参观的地方,以帮助一些动物发生了一些冲突。这显然是你所热衷的——是什么激发了你开始亚博app官方下载WVS??

Luke Gamble:I love being a vet but also adventure and travel.As bucks were tight after I qualified as a vet (1999),helping out a few animal charities and shelters in my holidays was the perfect way to combine all three – staying in dog shelters is very economical!After the first few trips – one to Greece and one to some Indian slums – I was hooked and setting up the charity (全球兽医服务) was great fun as I could instantly see the benefits and the help it could give to some pretty inspiring organisations.It was the first charity of its kind and we now have over 400 animal charities/shelters registered with us for help,we've sent out over a million pounds worth of meds and equipment in the last five years and we now send on average over one team a week to a far flung corner of the world (67 teams went out last year).The best bit is all the vets involved withWVSso this on an entirely voluntary basis – although we're starting to take a lot of non-vets on the teams now as well which is fantastic.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:Luke Gamble's Vet Adventures,在印度,你从一头牛的肚子里拿出17公斤的塑料袋时,我有点畏缩。That's probably enough to supply a supermarket for a week!我很高兴当时没吃饭!你从动物身上提取的最奇异的异物是什么??

Eating Plastic - Removed From Cow In India

Luke Gamble:I've taken lots of things out of lots of animals – nails,necklaces,knickers,袜子,christmas decorations and normal household rubbish.不过,获胜者可能是一个完全完好的酒瓶,它被塞进非洲象的肠子里。

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:Many of the countries that you visit have a lack of resources for pretty much everything and this often requires a lot of improvisation.我敢肯定你有时不得不把兽医的课本扔到窗外!What's the strangest form of improvisation you've had to undertake for a procedure??

Luke Gamble:I once had to use some sheep's fleece to make a thread for skin stitches.我真的怀疑它会起作用,but remarkably,they held long enough and with good antibiotic cover the animal pulled through.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:What's the most unusual form of transport that you have had to use to move an animal from one place to another?Extra points for using transport that is well under-engineered for the type of animal moved!!

Donkey Rescue India

Luke Gamble:我曾经用一辆没人认为合适的燕尾服运过一头驴。These things have moped engines so it was struggle up any incline,但令人惊讶的是,驴子似乎很喜欢骑马!!

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:You've probably seen some strange dog cross breeds on your travels.The most unlikely and impractical I've ever thought of would be the offspring between a great dane and a chihuahua (sorry,bad mental image!).你看见一只狗在你想的地方吗?how the hell was that possible??

Luke Gamble:I have firmly come to the conclusion that where there's is a will there's a way!!

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:哈哈,yes true,testosterone is capable of causing many unbelievable things!不管怎样,我妹妹是一个兽医护士,对阉割雄性猫有一种奇怪的迷恋(哎呀!).Neutering feral animals can often provide a good control in terms of the effects on native wildlife and minimising the potential of unwanted interactions with humans.虽然绝育可能并不迷人,how important is this in your line of work??

Luke Gamble:It's key.一个稳定的野性种群,neutered and vaccinated is safer for the community,keeps more dangerous and diseased animals away and doesn't breed uncontrollably.It is proven to be the only effective way to get on top of population control (particularly with street dogs) in the long term.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:I've been to Africa a few times and I love shooting the wildlife there with a camera.One thing that strikes me is that the size of the wildlife there would pose some challenges for people wanting to provide whatever treatment is necessary.What have you found has been the most challenging aspect of working with African wildlife??

非洲黑猩猩

Luke Gamble:Exactly that.The dangerous creatures want to eat you which is always a slight issue when they really need a quick jab….我有一段时间想在狮子身上爬一次,you'd think they be happy with a raw steak laced with wormer,but for some reason,they prefer a moving target… Not great when you run a bit like a duck.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:当你有一个年轻的家庭在家的时候出国旅行有时一定很困难。How do you balance up home life and going abroad?你怎么能拿到这么棒的假证?😉

Hawksbill Turtles Grenada

Luke Gamble:Having an awesome wife!The singularly most difficult thing I do with any charity trip or adventure I go on,正在登机。I absolutely love what I do,but on the last shooting block I was away 2 weeks of every month for ten months and the wrench just got worse with each trip.My wife is incredible and it is much tougher on her than it is on me no matter what slum or township I'm heading to.Everything I do with the charity or the TV is very much a team effort.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:AfterLuke Gamble's Vet Adventures,do you have any more TV Projects in the pipeline??

Luke Gamble:There are a heap in the pipeline and I'll be back on the road in 亚博app官方下载about 4 months.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:最后,where was the place where you first thought,‘hell yeah,I love this travel thing?'

Luke Gamble:It was 1995,I had shaved my head with some mates to raise money for black rhinos  and we were back-packing around Zimbabwe.We headed up to Matusadona National Park to help out with a rhino project and the whole experience was simply fantastic.明确地,that first cold beer after arrival,overlooking the African plain at sunset… Hard one to beat.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:That's great,thanks for your time!!
