Monitoring wild species health is essential in order to protect them
• Wildlife health, human health, domestic species health and the ecosystem's health are closely interrelated.
• Veterinarians study the parasites, the emerging or re-emerging infectious agents and the environmental contaminants which threaten wild species.
• By learning more about their diseases and the threats wild species are facing, we can better protect them.
• Conservation medicine, including non-invasive techniques allow us to monitor wild species' health.
