Jason Chatfield, DVM
Dr. Jason Chatfield’s non-traditional career path started while still in vet school when he not only created his own clinical curriculum, but also convinced the Dean to approve it! Dr. Jason spent his clinical year rotating through some of the country’s most prestigious captive wildlife collections including the San Diego Zoo and White Oak Conservation Center. Following graduation, he became the Director of the Center for Tropical Ungulates and was responsible for one of the largest collections of rhinoceros, giraffe, warthog, and other critically endangered antelope. Dr. Jason was then named the Vice-President for Animal Operations at Jungle Island in Miami, Florida. He is a proud father of 3 kids. His favorite things include Duke basketball, McDonald’s cheeseburgers, and embracing social distancing – even outside of a pandemic.
