Organisations we work with
WVI provides a service to the conservation community. We work through established in-country partners to train field and government staff in wildlife disease, health surveillance, sample taking and, where necessary, clinical skills and how to immobilise conflict animals.
Our vets help to build in disease surveillance frameworks in to ongoing conservation activities building up a picture of the disease status in an area or species. When not in the field, our vets are in constant contact with our Partners in the Field providing ongoing advice and support.
Not only do our Partners carry out disease surveillance and data collection on the ground, but they provide in-country logistical support for our vets and meet their own staffing costs. This provides invaluable matched funding
