Long-term disease surveillance in wildlife is necessary to build reliable information on species-specific normal anatomy, parasites and disease conditions. It is important also to detect new disease outbreaks in good time, identify diseases transmitted to and from humans and understand conditions that affect wildlife welfare, reproduction, meat and hide production to optimise these processes.
Detailed necropsy examination of wildlife species, storage of data in a searchable wildlife disease database and storage of diagnostic samples for future research.
