Québec’s annual workshop on wildlife health – Québec City 2013
Québec’s annual workshop on wildlife health was held in Quebec City last month. This two day workshop, known as the Journées réseau faune-zoo, is organised by the provincial Health, Agriculture and Wildlife departments and the Québec regional CCWHC office. This year, over 50 veterinarians, biologists and technicians with an interest in wildlife health participated in the event. Several presentations about issues currently affecting wildlife health in the Province of Quebec were given. These included topics such as Winter ticks in moose, problems of supplemental feeding in deer, fish health issues, mortality of beluga whale calves, West Nile Virus infections in birds and people, rabies in Arctic foxes, Lyme disease, and tularemia and parasites in caribou.
