Wildlife Health Australia aims to link, inform and support people and organisations who work with or have an interest in wildlife health across Australia through technical advice, facilitation, communications and professional support.

Wildlife Health Incident Reports

Every three months, information submitted to the national electronic Wildlife Health Information System (eWHIS) is collated by WHA and submitted to a quarterly publication: Animal Health Surveillance Quarterly (AHSQ). This publication is produced by Animal Health Australia (AHA) as part of Australia's national animal health information program. 

AHSQ contains a section on the main wildlife disease incidents that have occurred around the country for that quarter. 

Publications can be searched in the AHSQ Library, and the WHA Reports are below.

WHA also contributes to Animal Health in Australia reports that are produced annually by Animal Health Australia.
