The Zoological Society of London, The Wildlife Institute of India, The University of Edinburgh, The Kenya Wildlife Service and The Royal Veterinary College have been motivated to run this Course in recognition of the need to conserve globally important biodiversity. Wildlife diseases are relatively unstudied and unchecked, and there is an important need for greater expertise in, and greater numbers of, wildlife health professionals to tackle them. Such wildlife health professionals are required to undertake interventions in the health, welfare and conservation of wild animals, to investigate emerging infectious diseases and to ensure human well-being.

Tuition will be carried out in the field to develop skills in human-livestock-wildlife conflict management, disease outbreak investigation, forensic investigation and monitoring of the health of declining species. The Course will include techniques for field monitoring of wildlife (using animal tracks and signs, dung/pellet identification and quantification, census techniques, camera trapping, and radio telemetry), biological management, best practice in wild animal anaesthesia techniques, demonstration and hands-on practice, clinical examination in the field, sampling techniques for infectious disease screening, pathological examination in the field, and disease surveillance scenarios.
