Wildbase Research promotes collaborative investigation and management of wildlife in support of the welfare and conservation of New Zealand native fauna.
We are a group of veterinarians, ecologists and students involved in wildlife health. We work with the Allan Wilson Centre, Massey Ecology Group, Department of Conservation, Victoria University of Wellington and international collaborations such as the Alaskan USGS and the Alaskan Wader Group.
Current research projects are looking at issues with marine mammals such as brucella in Hector's dolphins and tuberculosis in NZ pinnipeds, a number of oiled wildlife projects such as post-release monitoring of NZ dotterels following the C/V Rena and wildlife disease including salmonella in tuatara, avipoxvirus in NZ, malaria in NZ passerines, seabird nutrition and takahe harness injuries.
