Wild Animal Health Fund Research Grants
For over 60 years, AAZV has played a role in nearly every wild animal medicine breakthrough to prevent diseases, enhance treatments and provide solutions. The most recently established program of AAZV, the Wild Animal Health Fund, is tackling the paucity of information available to zoo and wildlife veterinarians. In 2012, the members of AAZV decided to make one of the goals in the AAZV Strategic Plan to provide and fund science-based veterinary medicine through research. While there are other extremely successful conservation efforts going on around our world, Wild Animal Health Fund is the only program solely dedicated to funding professional veterinary research grants and studies to improve the health, welfare and reproduction (sustainability) of zoo animals and wildlife. We know that we need a lot more research to properly understand medicine, surgery, disease prevention and reproduction of each species to help with these conservation efforts.
