The mission of the WDA is to acquire, disseminate and apply knowledge of the health and diseases of wild animals in relation to their biology, conservation, and interactions with humans and domestic animals. The EWDA seeks to provide a forum for the exchange of information on wildlife diseases and their management. Through the provision of opportunities for networking, collaborative research and training we seek to raise the profile of wildlife disease research and management.
The main topic of the conference will be 'Convergence in wildlife health'. The organizing and scientific committees are aiming at gathering experts in wildlife health from a wide range of experiences and origins.
- ONE HEALTH
- MIGRATION AND INFECTIOUS DISEASE RISK
- HOW TO ASSESS THE HEALTH STATUS OF A WILD ANIMAL POPULATION
- WEIGHING COSTS AND BENEFITS OF WILDLIFE DISEASE CONTROL
