Project Summary:
Evidence indicates that zoonotic (animal origin) coronaviruses are responsible for three infectious disease outbreaks, including COVID-19. This project will address the absence of coordinated wildlife health and disease surveillance and management in UKOTs. This will be achieved by (i) review wildlife health and disease data for FI and bring together international experts and local stakeholders to identify priority data gaps, and establish an integrated approach to research, (ii) develop a webGIS database, (iii) provide the infrastructure for in-country pathogen testing.
