Since its inception in 2004, the Wildlife Services National Wildlife Disease Program (NWDP) has collected almost 600,000 samples from more than 200 wildlife species across the United States, Puerto Rico and Guam. Its mission is to survey for wildlife diseases, parasites and disease-causing agents of agricultural and human health concern. NWDP experts also serve as first responders to emergencies, such as disease outbreaks, natural disasters and oil spills.. In 2017, NWDP disease biologists collected more than 28,000 samples (see table below) in order to monitor for diseases, such as avian influenza, pseudorabies, plague and leptospirosis. With 32 wildlife disease biologists across the country, NWDP and its partners provide an early warning system to Americas agricultural producers, natural resources managers and public health officials who may be impacted by wildlife disease outbreaks.. As first responders, NWDP biologists can be mobilized within 24 to 48 hours of an emergency response ...

This book offers an all-encompassing resource for reliable information on the medical management of wild birds, mammals, amphibians, and turtles. Focusing on the medical information relevant to the wildlife setting, it covers triage, emergency care, and other key considerations in handling, diagnosing, and treating wild animals. The books population-based approach encourages practitioners to understand individual animal care within the broader context. Medical Management of Wildlife Species: A Guide for Practitioners begins with a brief summary of natural history, and introductory chapters address general topics such as pre-release conditioning, post-release monitoring, and legal issues associated with handling wildlife species. Species-specific chapters provide practical information on medical management, including the most prevalent concerns for each species and the epidemiology of infectious diseases. ...
Despite calls for improved responses to emerging infectious diseases in wildlife, management is seldom considered until a disease has been detected in affected populations. Reactive approaches may limit the potential for control and increase total response costs. An alternative, proactive management framework can identify immediate actions that reduce future impacts even before a disease is detected, and plan subsequent actions that are conditional on disease emergence. We identify four main obstacles to developing proactive management strategies for the newly discovered salamander pathogen Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal). Given that uncertainty is a hallmark of wildlife disease management and that associated decisions are often complicated by multiple competing objectives, we advocate using decision analysis to create and evaluate trade-offs between proactive (pre-emergence) and reactive (post-emergence) management options. Policy makers and natural resource agency personnel can apply

2.3 Nutritional value meat from wild animals. A number of studies on the nutritional value of wild animal meat indicate that bushmeat is comparable if not better than domestic meat. The general trend is that the meat of most wild animal species tends to be low in fat, while equal or better than beef, mutton, chicken or pork in protein content and much higher in vitamin content (Tables 2.7 and 2.8). Apart from the large game species, nutritional studies on wild animals have been carried out for non-conventional species such as rodents, insects and snails. Nutritional studies of rodents used as food in the Zambezian woodland gave average protein content of 24% (fresh weight); fat content of 2.816.8% and ash consent of % for twelve species (Malaise and Parent 1982, see Table 2.7). Based on these results, the authors concluded that the nutritive value of rodents places them on the same level as beef and chicken.. Several species of insects used for food in Africa have high protein and calorific ...

Bareilly: In a milestone for wildlife conservation in the country, Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI) here is setting up a DNA bank for wild animals, the first of its kind in North India. Scientists have so far collected samples of 140 species.. Through the DNA bank, scientists at IVRIs Centre for Wildlife will be able to tell the name and schedule of the species if they get only a part of the meat, hair, blood, skin or bone of any animal. Besides, the centre is also collecting serum of animals. The move will help clamp down on wildlife poaching and smuggling, and also aid in research on wildlife species, scientists said. A DNA bank exists in Hyderabad at present.. Talking to TOI, principal scientist and in-charge of the Centre for Wildlife, IVRI, A K Sharma said, On the instruction of director of IVRI R K Sharma, we have started setting up a DNA bank at our institute. We have already collected samples of all species which are targets of poachers. We have samples of tigers, leopards, ...
The American Association of Wildlife Veterinarians was formed in 1979 by a small group of veterinarians with a common interest in free-ranging wildlife. Initially, most members worked for government wildlife management agencies. But, with the rise of conservation biology and a better societal appreciation for what veterinarians can bring to wildlife health and conservation, current AAWV members work at academic institutions, in domestic animal private practice, at zoos and aquaria, and with state/provincial and federal agencies. Members engage in wildlife health research, clinical medicine, teaching, disease surveillance, regulatory work, and administration. https://aawv.net/. ...

Skunk is among the wild animal known to carry not only parasites in the feces and urine but also lots of dangerous diseases that can easily be transmitted to human. One of such diseases which one can easily get from touching or breathing skunk feces is listerosis disease. This is a disease of nervous system of mammals and can be severe if not controlled immediately. Pregnant women can easily have miscarriage when affected by this bacterial disease from wild animal feces. So, you must stay away from wild animal feces if you want to remain healthy and enjoy your life ...
Land use influences disease emergence by changing the ecological dynamics of humans, wildlife, domestic animals, and pathogens. This is a central tenet of One Health, and one that is gaining momentum in wildlife management decision-making in the United States. Using almost 2000 serological samples collected from non-native wild pigs (Sus scrofa) throughout Florida (U.S.), we compared the prevalence and exposure risk of two directly transmitted pathogens, pseudorabies virus (PrV) and Brucella spp., to test the hypothesis that disease emergence would be positively correlated with one of the most basic wildlife management operations: Hunting. The seroprevalence of PrV-Brucella spp. coinfection or PrV alone was higher for wild pigs in land management areas that allowed hunting with dogs than in areas that culled animals using other harvest methods. This pattern did not hold for Brucella alone. The likelihood of exposure to PrV, but not Brucella spp., was also significantly higher among wild pigs at hunted

In recent years, human feeding appears to be one of the major causes of inducing the unnatural growth of monkey and wild pig population in Hong Kong. Through frequent contacts with humans, these wild animals might lose their instinctive fear to humans and become habituated to stay near the urban area to approach human for food. Some of them might even become aggressive and stray into nearby urban settlement for searching of abandoned rubbish, or snatching plastic bags from human and causing human-wild animals conflict in the society. To abate the conflict, Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) has adopted multiple approaches, including the enactment of feeding ban under Wild Animals Protection Ordinance in 1999 and the implementation of contraceptive programme for long-term control of the monkey and wild pig population. Meanwhile, various educational and publicity programmes have also been implemented by AFCD to educate the public about the negative consequence of feeding ...

Date: April 15, 2019. Abstract: Illegal wildlife trade (e.g. illegal trade of ivory harvested from poached elephants) is one of the main threats to biodiversity, involving thousands of species. Traditionally, illegal wildlife trade has thrived on physical markets. In this age of global connectivity, however, illegal wildlife trade has moved to online markets, especially social media platforms. Social media and other digital platforms offer good conditions for illegal wildlife trade to thrive, as the platforms are easily accessible and have a high number of users. While this represents a pressing threat to the species targeted in the illegal wildlife trade, scientists can use data mined from digital platforms to investigate illegal wildlife trade at an unprecedented spatio-temporal scale. The use of digital data sources in combination with methods from artificial intelligence can potentially be used to provide new insights, which might help stop illegal wildlife trade. Many social media platforms ...

THS Director, Rick Speare, gave the opening address at the Australian Wildlife Rehabilitation Conference being held in Townsville 16-20 July. The lecture was titled Adventures in wildlife disease research: from benign curiosities to global epidemics. In this talk Rick discussed an eclectic range of conditions in Australian wildlife that he had investigated over 34 years of research: from strange parasites and diseases in macropods and possums to globally significant work on diseases causing epidemics in wild amphibians. He also highlighted the important role wildlife carers can play in unraveling the mysteries of wildlife diseases. This not only improves the outcomes of rehabilitation of individual animals, but can add significantly to conservation of wildlife. Wildlife carers are the eyes of the wildlife disease surveillance system.. For a researcher interested in new diseases wildlife is the last frontier. The vast and varied Australian fauna gives immense possibilities for pathogens to call ...

Wild rats, Rattus spp, have adapted so well to urbanization that humans may be obligatory to their survival. Consequently, rats foul human food sources, predate threatened fauna and serve as reservoirs for disease, costing the US economy $19 billion in losses year -1. Urban rat ecology however, remains vastly unexplored because these animals are cryptic, crepuscular, difficult to identify, and hazardous to handle. Additionally, the high-rise buildings that block satellite link-ups, underground sewers and subway tunnels, and rebar enforced concrete covered landscape make it difficult-if not impossible- to track urban animals using traditional radio telemetry. Consequently, there are few ecological studies with free-ranging urban rats. Therefore, we set out to monitor the behaviors and health of free-ranging rats in metropolitan New York. Recognizing that wild rats are attracted to live laboratory-reared conspecifics and that they are sensitive to pheromones, we used soiled rat bedding to repeatedly

One of the most common things that you can encounter in areas where there are wild animals present is their feces, and while it isnt always clear to see and will often have been covered, it is always worth being cautious when dealing with this material. Pets and domestic animals will often be drawn by their natural curiosity to investigate the feces, while it is important to try and deter them from this natural instinct, as they too can suffer from diseases in the feces. While it is best to try and take measures prevent wild animals from coming within range of your property to leave their feces, there are ways that you can remove and clean the feces too, but it is very important to do this correctly and safely ...

The California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) appreciates the many public and private animal control departments, veterinarians, shelters, rescue organizations and volunteers that provide humane care for wild animals. These organizations provide an important service and are often called upon to be first responders for wildlife emergencies and to find legal placement for the care of wild birds and animals.. What should I do if I find, or a client brings me, an injured or orphaned wild animal?. The California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Section 679, states that the public has 48 hours to contact the Department of Fish and Game or a licensed rehabilitator to place an injured or orphaned wild animal. Veterinarians must also comply with this regulation if they are not a permitted wildlife rehabilitation facility, or working directly with a licensed rehabilitator. The Department recognizes that there are times when a wild animal may need intensive care for more that 48 hours. In these cases ...
Tokay geckos, a type of gecko known for the to-kay sound it makes, are caught in the wild and often imported into the pet trade in the U.S. Sonia Hernandez, an associate professor of wildlife diseases, imported geckos from Indonesia to study how they respond to antibiotics. She and Christine Casey, a graduate student in the College of Veterinary Medicine, collected fecal samples from the geckos and tested them against common antibiotics. They found that the bacteria from the geckos intestines-known as enteric bacteria-were resistant to the antibiotics. The findings were published in a recent issue of Science of the Total Environment. The study shows how importing animals can introduce bacteria into households, said Hernandez, who is jointly appointed to the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study, based in the college, and the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. In general, its a good idea to know what bacteria an animal is bringing in. Any new animal, especially one ...
Compiled by a team of international wildlife and veterinary experts, a new study has identified seven routes by which pandemics could occur and 161 options for reducing the risk.. It concludes that widespread changes to the way we interact with animals are needed. The COVID-19 pandemic, thought to originate in a wild animal, has shown the enormous damage that can be wrought by a novel human disease.. There have since been widespread calls for new regulations to control interactions with wild animals to prevent the emergence of another pandemic - such as one caused by a coronavirus like SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The authors of the new report argue that well-meaning but simplistic actions such as complete bans on hunting and wildlife trade, wet markets or consumption of wild animals may be unachievable and are not enough to prevent another pandemic.. Zoonotic diseases of epidemic potential can also transmit from farmed wildlife (such as civets) and domesticated animals (as ...

Cats are responsible for the deaths of 1.4 to 3.7 billion birds and 6.9 to 20.7 billion mammals every year, according to research conducted by the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The study, published on Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications, highlighted the impact that both un-owned cats and owned cats have on wildlife populations in the United States. Feral, un-owned cats are responsible for the majority of deaths, and the study found previous wildlife mortality estimates to be far too low. It remained to be seen what large-scale impacts the killing sprees have on wildlife populations. PHOTOS: Crazy Cats Its hard to know, Dr. Peter Marra, research scientist at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and co-author of the study, told ABC News. We think there are 15 to 20 billion adult land birds in the U.S. If we are suggesting 2.3 billion are killed annually, that means 1 in 10 birds are taken by cats every year. The findings ...
The wildlife health network has been collecting information on wildlife health in Australia through its system of state and territory coordinators since 2002. As part of reporting arrangements, wildlife coordinators are asked to report monthly on any interesting or unusual cases in their jurisdictions.

Wild boar are seasonal breeders. In European male wild boar, sexual activity and testosterone production are triggered by decreasing day length, reaching a peak in October and November when the rut occurs. During the peak of testosterone production, one wild boar under study refused food for a six week period and lost approximately 25% of body weight. In the breeding season the normally solitary males move into female groups and rival males fight for dominance, whereupon the largest and most dominant males achieve the most matings. A wild boar sow, in Europe, is in oestrus with a 21 day cycle from autumn until June/July, at which time she becomes anoestrus until the next autumn. The start of the autumn oestrus in European wild boar may be triggered by nutritional status or day length. The nutritional status of the sow is important for breeding success.The odour from steroidal pheromones present in the male wild boars saliva stimulates receptivity in sows. ;Reproductive activity is seasonal. ...
The cougar has the largest range of any large wild animal. Depending on the region, it may be called the puma, mountain lion, mountain cat or catamount. The genus is Puma and the species concolor. There are a number of subspecies although this number varies according to the source consulted. The taxonomy is currently going through a review process. The cougar is the national animal of Argentina.
Origin: Germany, 1850-ies. Weight: 50-64 lbs. Height: 20-25 inches. The boxer is a very strong square dog. Boxers love to walk, but the owner should never forget the leash. Its also better to refrain from aggressive games. Still, boxers recognize all members of the family and can play well with the children.. The boxer breed was bred in feudal Germany and dates back to the line of bulldogs that existed in Europe in the XVI century. Its ancestors were used in hunting wild boars and other big wild animals. The first puppy in a new breed was given a name Box. Boxers qualities, such as their strength, were highly valued by farmers and shopkeepers.. ...

Between 2014 and 2017, the Serang CMRMB unit in Java successfully stopped, predominately through visual identification, approximately 250,000 individuals of 4 CITES-listed species: oceanic white-tip shark (Carcharhinus longimanus), hammerhead shark (Sphyrna sp.), thresher shark (Alopias sp.) and silky shark (C. falciformis).. A key challenge is that for many of these products, it is impossible to distinguish species by visual identification alone. CMRMB does not currently have molecular facilities to aid species identification, but since 2015 they have contracted other organizations to conduct genetic investigations to support CITES implementation. However, genetic testing is both time-consuming and financially unfeasible for regular use. It takes 3+ weeks to receive results and costs £110 per sample. Some CMRMB offices are located far from laboratory facilities and since the exporters are pushed to ship their cargo as quickly as possible, these time scales are not compatible with industry.

There is no doubt that feral cats play a major role in wildlife predation. Because they are a non-native species, they can cause an unusual amount of damage to the natural ecosystems of Florida. Read the articles below for proof positive that feral cats have a substantial negative impact on native wildlife:. The Impact of Free Ranging Domestic Cats on Wildlife of the United States. Nature (2013)..
