Conserving Hong Kong's wild species through Veterinary Research

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.
