Making A Difference


Fierce Lion

Creating platforms for collaboration and learning

With these initiatives, we aim to promote collaboration, teaching and learning opportunities for those interested in wildlife diseases. Each region in the WDA-AME section will aim to host at least one such a day every year. Some will take the form of discussion forums others might be a workshop or a mini-conference. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.

Student Chapters

Two Giraffes

One Step at a Time

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. What better way than involving our students. The Student Chapters (SC) are self driven groups of students creating opportunities to increase their understanding of what it means to be a wildlife vet, disease ecologist, epidemiologist and conservationist. Please contact your local SC if you would like to join or contribute.
