In the Spotlight: A New Look for the Australian Wildlife Health Network

The Australian Wildlife Health Network
A guest blogger on the Wildlife Disease News Digest

The Australian Wildlife Health Network (AWHN) recently updated the look and feel of our website. Our main home page address can still be found at: but you will need to update any other shortcuts you have to other areas of the website.

Have a look around the website and check out what’s new!  For example, we have a new Resources page  (this replaces our previous ‘Bulletin Board”) which provides links to current wildlife health information and resources using a number of different categories and areas of interest with a focus on Australia. Click on the link and explore.

We have also reorganised our Useful Links page. If you would like to post some news or a key wildlife health resource – please let us know.  Find out more about our Programs and Projects or download our current or previous Newsletters. And of course our Fact Sheets are also still available.

For those living or visiting Australia, don't forget that you can report any suspicious signs of disease or deaths in wildlife by contacting your local AWHN Wildlife Coordinator.

An Invitation to the Network

Share What You Know: Be Our Next Guest Writer for the Digest

Since the inception of the Wildlife Disease News Digest, we have always encouraged you, our readers, to share your wildlife health related announcements.  If you are excited about something happening in your organization or with your work, we, along with the rest of the Digest community, want to hear about it.

Use the Digest to share your announcements about the latest wildlife disease developments, education and employment opportunities, or any other tidbits of information that you feel is valuable. Don't be shy.  If you don't want to write your own announcement, just tell us about it and we will take it from there, but you have to email us your ideas at  Help your community of Digest readers stay abreast of the ever changing landscape of wildlife disease.
