'Wildlife Rehabilitator Survey'
Wildlife casualty data
This year WRI conducted our first annual wildlife survey of wildlife rehabilitators in Ireland. This survey data, in conjunction with the Wildlife Health Survey that we undertook with the veterinary profession, will allow for a better picture of any emerging infectious diseases, will provide a more accurate annual figure of wildlife casualties; and in turn will provide leverage for getting rehabilitators the assistance and respect their work deserves. Questions re wildlife crime incidents were added to our survey by the NPWS. A HUGE thank you to all who participated, and to Carmel O'Dwyer for coordinating the survey.
