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 ...

... 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 ...

A number of philosophical issues present themselves when it comes to interventions targeting diseases impacting free-ranging wildlife. One consideration relates to whether a given pathogen is a natural part of an ecosystem, versus a pathogen introduced by humans and their domestic animals or farmed wildlife. While there seems to be much conservation interest in intervening when it comes to Ebola and great apes, for example, its worth noting that Ebolavirus evolved in Central Africa, and is indeed considered a natural part of the Congo Basin forest ecosystem. Of course human-related activities can trigger all sorts of socio-ecological changes that can alter the impact of a pathogen on a species of conservation concern, or on humanity itself. There is unfortunately no clear "formula" for deciding when intervention is likely to be worthwhile from a conservation point of view- there are obviously many factors to consider. And when vaccination is deemed a logical or even essential conservation ...
The great demand for African bushmeat, both within Africa and in international markets, is emptying forests of wildlife and catalyzing outbreaks of wild animal diseases in humans. At a minimum, governments should zealously enforce bans on the hunting and consumption of bats and apes, two groups most commonly associated with Ebola. The fear and social unrest generated by the recent Ebola outbreak may spur governments to take such bans seriously with the vigilant support of a concerned populace. Yet reducing the trade in bushmeat will likely remain challenging due to the high demand and profits associated with it and the fact that it is widespread and pervasive throughout Africa. One collective action, however, can immediately reduce the chance of future outbreaks and spread of Ebola and other wildlife-based diseases. The world needs to act together to stop the illegal trade in live wildlife. We can start today by enforcing existing laws and regulations at airports and transport hubs across ...

Recent outbreaks of disease in domestic animals, humans and wildlife illustrate the relative importance of infectious diseases and the vulnerability of susceptible animals.
Recent outbreaks of disease in domestic animals, humans and wildlife illustrate the relative importance of infectious diseases and the vulnerability of susceptible animals.
A friend of mine, who has a 2-week-old, thanked me for being honest about how much the first few weeks can suck. Crying, your not knowing what the baby wants, cluster-feeding, pulling off if the flow is too fast or too slow, etc. He said most people candy-coat the first few weeks/months, and he thinks its because people dont want to admit that their child was like a wild animal.. I would much rather say to someone that I hated the early weeks because you have zero control and the baby is a constant vacuum of need, but gives you virtually no positive feedback. Seriously, when the fact that the kid poops and pees regularly is the best feedback youre getting, its not the most blissful phase. But Id rather be honest about that and then talk about how it does get better. Because it does. But also so your friend doesnt abandon all hope.. I never thought of either of my newborns as wild animals, but thats probably because I was thinking of them more as alien cyborgs with neverending appetites. ...

The Government of Canada is committed to preventing the disappearance of wildlife species at risk from our lands. As part of its strategy for realizing that commitment, on June 5, 2003, the Government of Canada proclaimed the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Attached to the Act is Schedule 1, the list of the species provided for under SARA, also called the List of Wildlife Species at Risk. Endangered or Threatened species on Schedule 1 benefit from the protection of prohibitions and recovery planning under SARA. Special Concern species benefit from its management planning. Schedule 1 has grown from the original 233 to 493 wildlife species at risk.
