Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is changing our Michigan landscape and there
are other numerous diseases that can affect Michigan’s wild birds and mammals. Discover how sick or dead wildlife are collected, tested and diagnosed by the DNR’s Wildlife Health Section. Learn how scientists perform a necropsy and what diagnostic tests are used. Some of the common wildlife diseases will be explored, highlighting zoonotic diseases, and we will discuss what scientists do with the information gained from wildlife health diagnostics.
