Veterinary Initiative for Endangered Wildlife
Our mission is to protect endangered wildlife by tackling the health threats they face in their native habitats.
Tigers, rhinos, elephants, and other wildlife species are declining due to poaching and habitat encroachment. Another issue that can be equally important to endangered species survival is the threats to wildlife health from degraded environments or infectious diseases acquired from humans and domestic animals. This concern has been given little attention as a conservation issue and VIEW is addressing it front and center.
Our work is accomplished in a simple and collaborative manner, using existing networks and opportunities to investigate wildlife health threats, train local wildlife professionals and veterinary students, establish basic infrastructure for diagnosis and sample storage, and manage disease threats through recommending prevention and treatment protocols.
Save a Tiger
…a rhino, elephant, wolverine, or other endangered or threatened species. There is no time to waste. Each animal is precious and when they are sick or dying we need to know why so we can prevent similar problems in the future. VIEW is helping our partners to develop those tools, so they will be able to get better answers. Click here for more information on how you can become a member of our team.
