71st Annual International Conference of the WILDLIFE DISEASE ASSOCIATION
“People, Passion, & Purpose: The Pathway to Wildlife Health”

July 29-August 4th, 2023; Athens, Georgia

Join our parent organisation for the 2023 71st International Wildlife Disease Association Conference! The need for an increased interest in wildlife health has been especially obvious since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Challenges such as climate change, pollution, poaching, deforestation, habitat loss, and invasive species have increasingly been devastating our native fauna, and all have a nexus with wildlife and wildlife health. The basis of this conference is to find holistic solutions to these challenges that optimize outcomes for humans, animals and the environment. We are planning a cutting edge, impactful science program to be delivered in engaging and innovative ways. Abstract submission will open December, 2022.
