Garden Wildlife Health Project
By: Dr Becki Lawson
In this presentation Becki will introduce the Garden Wildlife Health Project which undertakes disease surveillance of garden birds and birds of prey, along with amphibians, reptiles and hedgehogs across Great Britian. Wildlife disease surveillance enables us to understand the conditions that affect native species, and their implications for wild animal welfare. Key findings from the research to date will be highlighted, for example the impact of the emerging infectious diseases finch trichomoniasis and Paridae pox on British finch and tit populations respectively. Information on best practice for supplementary feeding of garden birds, to help prevent and control wild bird diseases will also be shared.
