Wildlife health is an important and growing, yet often overlooked, component of the conservation of wild species. Just like humans and domestic animals, wildlife are susceptible to intra- and inter-species diseases that can cause morbidity (the number of individuals in poor health in a given time period) and mortality.
The solution to preventing these diseases and ones we have yet to discover is to reduce our impact on wild places and protect bats from disturbance, hunting and misguided persecution.
