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.

Evaluating the Impact of Ticks and Tick-borne Diseases in Moose

Researchers will evaluate the combined effects of winter ticks and other parasitic infections on moose survival in Maine and generate a model to predict its ongoing impact on moose populations.

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.
