Wildlife Health Australia (WHA) is the coordinating body for wildlife health in Australia. Our principal objectives are the protection and enhancement of the natural environment.
We link, inform and support people and organisations who work with or have an interest in wildlife health and provide leadership, coordination, technical advice, facilitation, communications and professional support. Our members form a network of government and private stakeholders to help better manage wildlife health and its potential impact on Australia’s environment, biodiversity, animal and human health, trade and tourism.
WHA has a strong One Health focus. Through our activities we help link the environment, animal health and public health sectors, government and non-government. We collect and disseminate information on wildlife health from across Australia through our programs and projects.
During health and disease incidents involving wildlife, our role is one of communication, coordination, linkage and the provision of technical information to assist response agencies and stakeholders.
