A Short Video Introduction to WHER

The Wildlife Health Event Reporter (WHER) team has just launched a two minute video to provide a quick overview of WHER. The video highlights WHER's features and describes its purpose. Click play to watch the video now or view it here on YouTube.

The WHER team strongly encourages everyone to pass this video link along through email, listservs, blogs and other social networking tools to let others know about WHER.

The more reports WHER receives about sick and/or dead wild animals sighted by an engaged public, the greater the potential for everyone to gain a better understanding of wildlife disease and its impact on human, domestic animals and wildlife.
