The Jungle Doctor

The Adventures of an International Wildlife Vet

Chloe Buiting

 Explore the majestic, biodiverse world with Australia’s very own ‘jungle doctor’.

Fresh from veterinary school, passionate conservationist Dr Chloe Buiting headed for the frontline of Africa’s rhino-poaching crisis, going on to live and work in many other remote corners of the globe.

From catching wild giraffes by helicopter in Zimbabwe to meeting elephants with prosthetic legs in Asia, working with Maasai communities in Tanzania and tending to wildlife caught up in the bushfire crisis at home in Australia, Chloe’s compassion for animals in their natural habitat takes her into awe-inspiring locations – and hair-raising situations.

See what life is like in a job where no day is ever the same. Accompany Chloe on her journey into the fascinating world of conservation. And discover humanity’s deep connection with the animal kingdom, one adventure at a time.

 

 ‘The Jungle Doctor prepares current and future wildlife heroes to take on any challenge in their path with confidence.’
 – Stephanie Arne, Conservationist

Chloe Buiting is an Australian veterinarian and wildlife conservationist. Her experience growing up on Australia’s beautiful Lord Howe Island inspired her to pursue a career in the field of wildlife conservation.

Chloe completed a Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, both at the University of Melbourne. Following this, she undertook additional training in large animal anaesthesia in Africa. Chloe has since spent time both working and volunteering with a range of wildlife organisations around the world.

Chloe shares her adventures on Instagram and through her website. When she isn’t working abroad, she lives with her husband Jan (who is also a wildlife vet!) on Kangaroo Island in South Australia. They enjoy surfing, snorkelling, time with friends, photography and, of course, looking after the orphaned kangaroo and koala joeys that come into their care!

Chloe’s first book The Jungle Doctor will be published by Pantera Press in 2021.
