Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A mission to ensure the health of marine wildlife and their ecosystems by UC Davis Wildlife Health Center's (WHC) Marine Ecosystem Health Program (MEHP) was discussed. The MEHP's guiding premise is that stewardship of marine wildlife and their ecosystem is best achieved by strong collaborations among academic researchers, governmental marine resource managers, and non-governmental marine conservation organizations. The WHC brings scientific skills, animal health expertize, and strong stakeholder collaboration to improve the health of wild animal populations and their environments. The MEHP focuses on the transboundary inland waters of the Pacific Northwest.
