The Global Health Program identifies and addresses health concerns in threatened wildlife populations. Their work is focused in East Africa and Southeast Asia — biologically and culturally diverse regions that are home to some of the most endangered keystone species on the planet.
Survival of wildlife in these areas is threatened by habitat loss, poaching and disease, among many other factors. Such threats to survival are only exacerbated by the lack of support, resources and trained wildlife health specialists around the world. Through in situ clinical care, research and training, the Global Health Program plays a critical role in stabilizing wildlife populations so that all species and ecosystems may thrive.
