Wild Birds on ENETWILD focus

The ENETWILD Consortium, coordinates numerous leading European institutions in the ecology and epidemiology of European wildlife (www.enetwild.com). Its main objective is to collect information on the geographical distribution and abundance of populations of wild species relevant to infectious diseases that also represent a risk to the health of domestic species and human. Avian influenza is […]

Guidance to estimate wild boar density

Recently, ENETWILD released a practical guidance to estimate wild boar population, relative abundance and density. The guidance is based on literature review as well as previous experiences from ENETWILD partners and external experts. DOWNLOAD COMPLETE GUIDANCE The general aim of this guidance was to review the accuracy and comparability of methods to estimate relative abundance […]

Collecting Wild Boar Data :2018 update

Risk assessment, risk analysis and risk management require reliable (high quality) wild population data, which are not available so far. This project, funded by EFSA, is aimed at mapping wildlife species in Europe that are relevant for pathogens transmitted to animals and humans. The objectives that ENETWILD will develop during next phases are focused on […]
