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.
