SURVEILLANCE

Early diagnosis of diseases in wildlife populations can prevent biodiversity loss. The rapid identification of the problem (infectious or non-infectious) can lead to the fast and correct implementation of control measures to stop the cause of decline.  

Therefore, with this pillar we focus on the early warning and signaling of diseases and (mass) mortality events in  wildlife in Flanders. The gained knowledge about endemic and epidemic diseases can be shared and used as a basis for advice on the control of these diseases and the possible risks for humans, domesticated and wild animals.
