As a wildlife rehabilitator, you are automatically placed in a segment of the population that is at a high risk of experiencing a zoonotic disease exposure. A zoonosis (plural zoonoses), is an infection or infestation shared in nature by man and other animals; a disease of man acquired (transmitted) from an infected animal to man. To decrease the chances of acquiring a zoonotic disease, wildlife rehabilitators should know the essential factors that enable a disease to pass to man, gain knowledge of the zoonotic diseases, and be constantly aware of the preventative measures that must be taken to break the passage of the disease from animal to man.
