The Wildlife Conservation Society's Animal Health for the Environment And Development (AHEAD) initiative was created by WCS' Field Veterinary Program in response to the growing recognition of the critical role of animal health in both conservation and development projects. Throughout the world, domestic and wild animals are coming into ever-more intimate contact. Without adequate scientific knowledge and planning, the consequences can be detrimental on one or both sides of the proverbial fence. But armed with the tools and expertise that the animal health sciences provide, conservation and development objectives have a much greater chance of being realized - particularly at the critical wildlife / livestock interface where conservation and agricultural interests meet head-on.
