The NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare is offering this webinar that will address the model protocol that has been compiled by the Ornithological Council and the American Society of Mammalogists and that will also address the appropriate guidance for the oversight of research involving animals.
This is the first time OLAW (which funded the most recent revision of Guidelines to the Use of Wild Birds in Research) has afforded the wildlife community this platform, which could reach thousands of IACUC chairs, members, and Institutional Officials. Please be sure to urge your institution's research oversight people to sign up, listen in, and ask questions!

Join OLAW for a webinar, Oversight of Research Involving Wildlife, on March 20 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm ET. Wildlife Biologist Robert Sikes, PhD, presents suggestions and a sample IACUC protocol form to facilitate IACUC review of research involving wildlife.
