From Around The World

Wildlife Studies

Veterinary Advances for Wildlife

Since 1965, we have invested $28 million in more than 710 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 Health and Conservation Consequences of Hybrid African Elephants

Researchers will assess the prevalence of hybrid elephants (naturally interbred African forest and savanna elephants) and how their health compares to their parental species.

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.
