Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is responsible for working collaboratively to develop a regional approach to wildlife health issues and promote the consideration of health in all aspects of wildlife management.  Members serve as a two-way conduit between SCWDS and SEAFWA state agencies and their Directors.  Members update SCWDS on wildlife health issues confronting their states and guide SCWDS to conduct research projects and to draft policies, model regulations, and advisories that are useful to the states.  Just as importantly, members inform their Directors and agency staff of SCWDS activities, research results, and policy recommendations designed to assist the states in their management of healthy wildlife populations.
