Wildlife health is driven by ecology. 

Disease, food availability, predation, competition, climate, human interactions, all occur within an animal's ecological context.


Wildlife health conservation requires a deeper understanding of ecological drivers.

The Wildlife Health Ecology Research Organization conducts fundamental and applied research, with the goal of gathering the ecological knowledge needed to understand and conserve wildlife health.

Wildlife H.E.R.O. is a young organization aiming to grow into a professional community of motivated researchers who want to use their work to positively impact wildlife health through ecology-based research. 

This is only possible by working with collaborators who are passionate about advancing knowledge on wildlife health through ecology, and about applying this knowledge to improve wildlife health.

Wildlife H.E.R.O. is currently looking to develop partnerships and collaborations to work on existing and future projects to perform impactful research. Projects can be small, like analyzing existing data, or large, like partnering to organize and submit competitive project proposals.
