Maintaining healthy wildlife populations is a fundamental component of sound wildlife management. The Wildlife Health Program is a group of veterinarians, researchers, and technicians dedicated to diagnosing, monitoring, educating, and conducting research on diseases of free-ranging wildlife in Colorado. Working in concert with agency biologists and managers, we focus our work on issues that affect the long-term health and viability of wildlife populations. Additionally, we develop tools and methodologies to facilitate improved research and safe and humane wildlife capture, handling, and monitoring. This work is augmented by the Foothills Wildlife Research Facility where numerous species of wildlife are maintained for research and teaching purposes. In-house molecular diagnostics and necropsy services are utilized to support our efforts to deliver a coordinated and systematic approach to wildlife health.
