Below is a list of the top 6 challenges zoo and wildlife veterinarians face every day. Some are big and some are small but they can all stand in their way as they try to make animals' lives better.
Animals can't ask for help. That's why we're here.
The Wild Animal Health Fund advocates for the injured, sick and dying animals all around the world. With your help, we can make a difference.
Unlike human patients, zoo animals and wildlife can't ask for help. They can't tell us where it hurts. They can't describe their pain and discomfort.
But as zoo and wildlife veterinarians who have worked with all kinds of animals, we can tell you that in the field you know when something's wrong.
We have experienced the awful feeling that comes with not knowing the best way to cure an infection, treat an illness or disease, or soothe an animal in distress.
That's where you and The Wild Animal Health Fund make a difference. New discoveries that come from studies funded by the Wild Animal Health Fund help minimize those awful experiences of not knowing how to help an animal and advance animal health, welfare and conservation worldwide.
