WDIN is a collaborative project working to develop a Web-based monitoring and reporting system to provide state and federal resource managers, animal disease specialists, veterinary diagnostic laboratories, physicians, public health workers, educators, and the general public with access to data on wildlife diseases, mortality events, and other critical related information. Data are contributed voluntarily, with partners deciding which data they choose to share. Building partnerships and providing tools to facilitate long-term collaborative efforts in the wildlife disease arena through a Web-based monitoring and reporting system are being pursued to facilitate access to data and information.
