Ensuring the health of wildlife, improving the health of people, domestic animals and the environment.
Wildlife populations and ecosystems are essential for human health and wellbeing.

They also expose people and domestic animals to disease from wildlife hosts with serious implications for human health and livelihoods. This interconnection between people, animals, plants forms the basis of our approach.
