A european network of wildlife professionals capable of providing reliable data on species distribution and abundance of selected host species and their pathogens.

A european network of wildlife proffesionals capable of providing reliable data on species distribution and abundance of selected host species and their pathogens, now focusing on wild boar populatins.

About the project.

Risk assessment for some pathogens of interest for humans and livestock requires the availability of presence and abundance data on wild species which can represent reservoirs for pathogens

Many European countries and organizations collect spatial data on distribution and abundance of wildlife, but each one has its own specific characteristics with respect to the methodology used, the type of data acquired, the repository implemented and their accessibility.

Through ENETWILD, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) funds this project to collect comparable data at European level in order to analyse risks of diseases shared between wildlife, livestock and humans; data that are also essential in conservation and wildlife management.

This project attempts to improve the European capacities for monitoring of wildlife population, developing standards for data collection, validation and, finally, create and promote a data repository.

The objectives that ENETWILD will develop during next years are specifically focused on wild boar.

COLLECTING DATA ON WILD BOAR ABUNDANCE ACROSS EUROPE

COLLABORATE IN WILD BOAR DATA CALL.

Release of a model to collect data on wild boar distribution and abundance across Europe: the need for data standards

Data.

Harmonizing data collection is a long-term project; and ENETWILD will be a first step. We will harmonise the European data framework for our species and topics (distribution and abundance), which opens the space to aggregate these data from the whole Europe

Output.

Here, we will link to reports published by EFSA journal associated to ENETWILD.We also include links to other reports associated to African Swine Fever.
Users will be able to access to outputs (predictions) from modelling in the map section.
