Over the last 30 years, interventions, for reasons of health, welfare and the conservation, of free-living wild animals have been undertaken with increasing frequency. Specialist veterinary expertise is required in order to assess and control diseases in wildlife.
Emerging infectious diseases are also recognised as a serious hazard both for wild animals, and for the domestic animal and human populations that interact with these species. In addition, a large number of wild animal species are kept in captivity; in zoos and in laboratories, which has led to an increased demand for specialist skills and knowledge.
Participants of this course graduate with the analytical skills, the understanding, the confidence and the language to influence thinking and policy making within organisations.
