Fee: $25Intended Audience: natural resource agency professionals and other interested persons

Overview: The workshop will focus on the Fish and Wildlife Health profession and the importance of having dedicated Fish and Wildlife Health programming within a natural resource agency. Not all state or federal natural resource agencies have Fish and Wildlife Health programming and those that do may have dedicated branches, sections and multiple staff whereas others may only have one dedicated staff person. This workshop will showcase the why, how, and what of natural resource agency Fish and Wildlife Health programs. This will include experiences with working within the fish/wildlife/human health interface, fish and wildlife disease field diagnostics and surveillance, database applications, emerging disease collaboration, contaminants, and results of management actions. These shared experiences and lessons learned along the way will help inform how natural resource agencies may establish or enhance their own Fish and Wildlife Health programs.
