George Wilson attended the International Wildlife Diseases Association conference on Sunshine Coast, opened by Threatened Species Commissioner Gregory Andrew. There was a great turn out and many enlightening presentations.
The major theme was emerging human and wildlife diseases that result from spill-over of pathogens to other hosts, such as Hendra, Ebola, SARS, MERS.
Other interesting discussions took place, including diseases in koalas, frogs, Tassie devils and cats. A report was also given by Tim Portas, on the improvements of condition and health to the Mulligans Flat bettongs.
