The new Guidelines provide unprecedented tools into the hands of wildlife workers in Australia to minimize the spread of disease and protect the health of individual animals, people, and free-ranging wildlife populations. They assist in further improving Australia’s environmental biosecurity arrangements.
The project’s coordinator Andrea Reiss has drawn together the latest information and insights from many specialist agencies including biosecurity, environment, human health, as well as many non-government organisations and expert individuals to produce the first National Wildlife Biosecurity Guidelines.
Wildlife Health Australia is the coordinating body for wildlife health in Australia.
