Foreign Animal Disease

The Zoo Animal Health Network, in partnership with the USDA, is working to expand the scope of foreign animal disease preparedness to include exotic animals. Although excellent training materials for foreign animal disease currently exist in electronic format, this curriculum is specially targeted to meet the unique needs of zoos, exhibitors, sanctuaries, and other entities in the exotic animal industry. These materials provide both basic and advanced training to assist exotic animal care staff with detection, prevention, and response to foreign animal diseases.

AVIAN INFLUENZA PREPAREDNESS

Training on avian influenza is divided into seven modules, totaling approximately 45 minutes. Each module addresses a separate aspect of preparedness.

Additional supplemental training information is provided by clicking the owl icons within the modules. This additional information provides more detail on specific topics, either through supplemental documents or websites.
