Abstract

In summary, the case study presented by provides valuable information for conservation managers about the dangers of infectious diseases and also the potential strategies for managing these threats. There is no doubt that wildlife diseases will continue to appear in endangered populations and we need to be well prepared to respond to these threats. Well-designed interventions that can be monitored and evaluated will do much to help build confidence that interventions to control wildlife disease threats are feasible and can be effective.
