Wildlife trade pandemics and the law: Fighting this year’s pandemic with last year’s laws

A report from Legal Atlas, Eco Health and George Mason University

This report takes a critical look at what have nations already done with their laws that support the monitoring and prevention of disease emergence that comes from wildlife? In particular, it examines how ten different areas of law respond to this need and provides a summary of the legal challenges and the many opportunities for immediate action. Find the report HERE.

WDA Continues to Support One Health

For more than 60 years Wildlife Disease Association has published what is now called One Health research, facilitated One Health solutions to wildlife conservation challenges, and promoted One Health education.

For over 30 years WDA's One Health mission has been to "acquire, disseminate, and apply knowledge of the health and diseases of wild animals in relation to their biology, conservation and ecology including interactions with humans and domestic animals”.

Most recently WDA's slogan says it all:
WDA is all wildlife diseases, all conservation, all one health, all the time!"
