72nd Annual International Conference of the WILDLIFE DISEASE ASSOCIATION
“Respect, Listen, Reflect”

1st - 6th December, 2024; Canberra, A.C.T, Australia

Join us and our parent organisation for the 2024 72nd International Wildlife Disease Association Conference

Through respect, listening and reflection, WDA 2024 will take the wildlife health community on a journey towards a new participatory environment that recognises and values other knowledges, other ways of knowing and other ways of sharing knowledge.
The WDA 2024 vision is to inspire transformative action toward the decolonisation of wildlife health research and practice. What does this mean? It means coming to terms with how history and global socio-cultural phenomena have shaped the wildlife health community as we understand it today, and our responsibilities arising from that. It means seizing the opportunities offered by diverse communities and embracing other ways of seeing, hearing and knowing. It also means accepting and acting on our role in shaping and influencing the systems we are part of.
