Background: Through its Tiger Health Programme, Wildlife Vets International (WVI) currently provides clinical services, on-site training, disease investigation and some research activities for a variety of wild tiger projects in different countries.
They are now developing a web-based information service covering many aspects of veterinary support for wild tiger professionals.
Achievements: Over many years, WVI have run a number of in-situ workshops in range countries which are extremely valuable, but they only reach a limited number of people. The main aims of the website are to disseminate up-to-date information on tiger health issues, provide basic online training and establish connectivity between tiger vets. It will eventually include modules on Anaesthesia, Disease in wild tigers, Pathology, Parasitology. Toxicology, Diagnostic testing, Disease surveillance, Biosampling methods, a Drug formulary, Tiger rehabilitation, Contact lists, and many others.
Future objectives: The first phase of the website is currently being developed. This will involve a simple, searchable, and expandable website design that can be edited by WVI without constant recourse to the web designer.
