Scientific Task Force on Avian Influenza and Wild Birds releases statement

Recommended Posts

The Scientific Task Force on Avian Influenza and Wild Birds, a cooperative task force established by the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, has  released a statement on high pathogenicity avian influenza in wild birds.

The statement was developed in response to the extensive and large-scale outbreaks and global spread of H5N1 high pathogenicity avian influenza in wild birds, with a goal of informing stakeholders in governments, disease control, wildlife management, site management, conservation and the poultry sectors about HPAI viruses in wild birds and appropriate responses. The statement provides both a situation update and also recommendations and guidance for those responding to the threat of HPAI to wild birds.
