Wildlife Health Toolkit

The One Health Research Group have established many valuable collaborations with other university-based research teams nationally and internationally, allowing us to offer services and capabilities in the form of a Wildlife Health Toolkit, which can be used to tackle any wildlife health issue.

Beyond universities, our collaborations include: the CSIRO, Wildlife Health Australia; the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment; Zoos Victoria; the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning; Parks Victoria and Phillip Island Nature Park.

These relationships allow us to offer truly multi-disciplinary research teams and projects and to tailor solutions to wildlife health issues that meet end user needs.

Our Wildlife Health Toolkit can provide services in the following fields:

  • Outbreak investigation into illness, death and species decline
  • Health assessment of species to determine their resilience to threatening processes
  • Risk analyses for wildlife health issues
  • Disease surveillance of wildlife species, including field work for targeted issues including pollution (Wildlife Health Surveillance: Victoria)
  • Diagnostic capability for a wide range of health issues such as micro- and macro-parasites, including viruses
  • Epidemiological advice and analysis of wildlife health data.
