The Australasian Section of the Wildlife Disease Association was established in 1973 and was the first geographic WDA section. The mission of the WDA-A is to to acquire, disseminate and apply knowledge of the diseases of wild animals in relation to their biology, ecology, and conservation. The section consists of enthusiastic members including parasitologists, researchers, zoo vets, private practitioners, zoologists, pathologists, biochemists and students, with expertise across a broad range of disciplines and species.
Management of policies and activities of the WDA-A section is through an Executive Committee that includes representation from each region. See details below.
