69th WDA / 14th EWDA - Joint Conference - Cuenca, Spain

EWDA Network Meeting: Expanding the field network of wildlife health surveillance


Sunday, August 30, 2020. Hotel Torremanga; C/ San Ignacio de Loyola, 9. 16002 Cuenca.
This event will have NO SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION into Spanish.

Outline: Successful wildlife health surveillance schemes often benefit from multi-disciplinary teams. Engagement and collaboration with an extended field network can help optimise surveillance outputs and their collective impact. The goal of this meeting it to illustrate the opportunities that exist to expand surveillance through working in partnership with various communities (e.g. bird ringers, public/citizen science, hunters, game biologists, wildlife rehabilitators, social scientists, habitat managers). Presentations will highlight projects/schemes that have successfully employed novel networks, technologies and/or techniques. The round panel discussion session will enable presenters to explore the benefits and limitations of these methods. We hope that these presentations will provide inspiration to others who may be able to reapply the lessons learned in their countries.

Preliminary programme: Available son; 13:00 to 18:30.
