Zoonotic Disease

Every year, zoological organizations are faced by new challenges in maintaining the health of their animal collections. Zoonosis, or disease that can be spread between species, forms one of the greatest threats to the safety of animals, guests, and keepers. Using a case study from a zoonotic disease concern at the San Diego Zoo, you will learn the basics of zoonotic disease identification and prevention, including standard record keeping, best practices, health and safety protocols for keepers, and the understanding of how disease can be spread.
