Wildlife disease is an important driver of wildlife populations. Each year, wildlife managers across the United States are confronted with sick and dead animals, frequently on a large scale. Minimizing such wildlife losses depends on effective technical support, knowledgeable guidance, and timely intervention.

Our wildlife health capabilities provide research, information, and technical assistance needed to manage
wildlife through disease events. We are expanding our tools to include more maps of disease spread.
