Disease Fact Sheets

NWDC staff created over 50 wildlife disease fact sheets for use by wildlife biologists, researchers, and the public. The diseases include those that affect wild animals in the Northeast (e.g. White-nose Syndrome), and some that are shared between wild and domestic animals (e.g. Canine Distemper Virus), and between wildlife and humans (e.g. West Nile Virus). Characteristics of each disease are described including cause, species affected, geographic distribution, transmission mode, clinical signs, and management. The sheets are intended to be concise and easy to navigate quickly; for those interested in delving into more detail, additional readings are listed.
