In March 1951, a group of 28 U.S. and Canadian scientists interested in wildlife diseases
founded the Wildlife Disease Committee, which became the Wildlife Disease Association (WDA).
WDA is a US tax code 501 non-profit organization.
Our mission is to acquire, disseminate, and apply knowledge of the health and diseases of wild animals in relation to their biology, conservation, and interactions with humans and domestic animals.
