Wildlife death and illness reports

Wildlife death and illness reports.WHISPers, hosted by the USGS National Wildlife Health Center, is a “repository for sharing basic information about historic and ongoing wildlife mortality (death) and/or morbidity (illness) events,” with contributions from “hundreds of natural resource managers and stakeholders across the U.S. and beyond.” Wisconsin officials, for instance, reported that a bald eagle died of lead poisoning in Adams County this April. You can search WHISPers by date range, county, species, diagnosis, and more — up to 500 events at a time, exportable as CSV files. [h/t Terra R. Kelly et al.] (Source)
