Twelve Days of the Wildlife Health Event Reporter
Day 12: Happy Holidays! Wishing you Joy, Happiness and Good Health!
We also wanted to thank all the new people who signed up to use WHER! As a reminder, WHER users can always enter in sightings of wildlife health events you observed in the past, even those going back a few months ago, as long as you remember the who, what, when and where facts of the event.
Current reports to WHER provide near-real time situational awareness of where wildlife health events are occurring. Although past sightings that are back entered are just as valuable, because these historic records contribute to the development of a wildlife morbidity and mortality baseline - a beneficial benchmark that wildlife health professionals can use to support wildlife disease management decisions.

wildlife health events have been recently reported.
Kick off the New Year by reporting the next wildlife health event you see! Each report to WHER expands our knowledge base and understanding of disease ecology.
The WHER team wishes you joy, happiness and good health in the coming New Year!
