The Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre (CCWHC) is a wildlife health sciences centre among Canada’s five veterinary colleges. In collaboration with academic, government, and non-government organizations, CCWHC programs reduce the ecological and socio-economic costs of diseases in Canadian wildlife and foster the integrated management of human, animal and environmental health. The CCWHC is Canada’s national health care system for wildlife.
Donors to the CCWHC have the opportunity to support any of a rich array of meaningful and important programs: the constant vigilance and prevention of disease problems, community-based programs to empower aboriginal people to manage health issues, innovations in the conservation of wild animals, recovery of species at risk, setting standards for wild animal welfare, preparing for the health effects of climate change, managing the interface of human and animal health, and a special fund, the McEachran Fund, for ecosystem health research
