Our Work With Wildlife

Some of Our Wildlife Studies

From Around The World

Wildlife Studies

Veterinary Advances for Wildlife

Since 1967, we have invested $28.9+ million in more than 740 wildlife health studies. We’ve contributed to improved reproduction strategies for endangered species, identified the impact of environmental toxins on wildlife, and established in-the-field medical care for the mountain gorillas of Rwanda. We also fight wildlife health crises, with support from our Betty White Wildlife Fund.

Identifying Drivers of Fatal Infections in Southern Sea Otters

This study is part of our fellowship program, established to support early career research scientists. The Fellow will study whether infection with different strains of the parasite Sarcocystis neurona leads to different disease severity in southern sea otters.

Wildlife around our planet have suffered great losses over the past 40 years; in fact, animal populations have fallen on average by 52% since 1970. Habitat destruction, poaching and climate change are contributing to this decline, as are established, emerging and re-emerging diseases. But, Morris Animal Foundation is fighting back.
