|The Good and Bad of Bacteria in Wildlife|
Zoo and wildlife veterinarians are making discoveries to optimize the health, welfare and and conservation of zoo animals and wildlife through critical research and studies.
Recent research has shown that bacteria living in and on the body can have an impact on your health. But what about wildlife?
Unfortunately, we know very little about how the microbiome is related to health and disease in wild animal populations, because until now it has been logistically very difficult and expensive to study.
Donate now to further animal health studies that are imperative in the health and well-being of wildlife animals.
Make your donation in honor of or in the memory of someone special. Thank you for taking action to support animal health for our wildlife friends.
The American Association of Zoo Veterinarians is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Together we meet the future challenges with excitement and optimism.
