Wildlife Disease News Digest: Newsmaker Interviews    View list of past newsmaker interviews

Every Friday, the Wildlife Disease News Digest staff brings its readers special features through the segment, In the Spotlight. One such feature is the Wildlife Health Newsmaker Interview.

Maintaining the health of wildlife is not just of interest to the wildlife disease specialist, but professionals from related disciplines (e.g. public health officials, domestic animal veterinarians, conservationists, policymakers, etc.) and the public also share this concern. It is this unique mix of individuals that make up the wildlife health community, and almost all its members would agree that a holistic approach is needed in order to better manage and understand emerging diseases.

One step towards implementing this approach is for managers, practitioners and researchers to learn about the related work others are doing across different disciplines, and around the world. Through the Wildlife Health Newsmaker Interview segment, the Digest introduces readers to the interesting, innovative and newsworthy work that our colleagues are doing.
