Our Work With Wildlife

Some of Our Wildlife Studies

From Around The World

Wildlife Studies

Veterinary Advances for Wildlife

Since 1965, we have invested $27 million in more than 690 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.

Improving In-Field Care for Eastern Black Rhinoceros

Researchers will investigate methods to decrease stress and associated health and welfare complications during immobilization and translocation of eastern black rhinoceros.

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.

Linking Noise Pollution to Cricket Health and Reproduction

Researchers will investigate costs of human-generated noise on crickets as a model for other invertebrates. Invertebrates make up more than 95% of all animal species on Earth and form the backbone of most healthy ecosystems.
