Be part of the Wildlife Disease Association
The WDA is looking to professionalize and grow our communications. We want to increase our impact by growing our social and traditional media presence and developing a greater online presence through dynamic and effective content. We want to develop valuable communications resources for our membership, including new approaches to disseminating news such as professional newsletters, blogs and/or podcasts; and for the broader community, by developing scientific media content such as videos and animations and coordinating communication across multiple channels in promotional events. We want to promote our association, our published science, our values and wildlife health.
This is an opportunity to be an integral part of a highly motivated international scientific/conservation organisation with enormous unrealized potential, and to have a significant positive impact on our association and our mission. We are looking to introduce and facilitate new ways of communicating, supported by a passionate team of contracted staff and professional volunteers, to advance wildlife and environmental health.
