About Dr Mariane Morin
Graduating with a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2013 from the University of Montreal, Dr Mariane Morin has worked in Canada, Senegal and Thailand. In 2018 Mariane moved to Melbourne (with her cat Pablo) and has been working with Thornbury Veterinary Hospital, specialising in small animal medicine, surgery and geriatric cats.
As a French-Canadian who grew up camping amongst the luxuriant Canadian wilderness, Mariane has long been aware of the environmental crises we are facing. Her love of nature has inspired her to make efforts in her personal life to become more sustainable, and reduce her ecological footprint.
Mariane has been volunteering with Vets for Climate Action (VfCA) since 2021 which she has found immensely rewarding. It has provided her with an opportunity to have both a global and local impact, including influencing her hospital to introduce sustainable practices to combat climate change. Techniques she has shared as the content developer for the 'Energy Efficiency' module for VfCA’s Climate Care Program.
