Official opening of wildlife health genetic and forensic laboratory between EcoHealth Alliance and Sabah Wildlife Department
Date:12/9/2013

netic research but also to assist our Wildlife Enforcement Division in analyzing the confiscated illegal bushmeat to determine species and origin, using genetic tools. Capacity building within my department has also been enhanced by the setting up of a new unit, the Wildlife Health Unit in collaboration with EcoHealth Alliance and DGFC, which is part of SWD's Wildlife Rescue Unit. While the WRU conducts wildlife rescue and translocation activities, the WHU will be responsible for leading the physical and diagnostic evaluation of rescued and relocated wildlife across the state as well as conducting sampling trips to trap and sample free ranging wildlife and assess wildlife in protected and unprotected areas," added Ambu.

Director of Danau Girang Field Centre, Dr. Benoit Goossens said, "It is a great honor to be part of this historic moment, after two years of hard work with Dr. Sen Nathan from SWD and Mr. Tom Hughes from EcoHealth Alliance, my two colleagues with whom we have shared sweat, tears and joy! Thanks to EcoHealth Alliance's support and the USAID Emerging Pandemic Threats (EPT) Program we have been able to set up this incredible tool which will allow us to carry out wildlife health work that will in return benefit conservation and land use planning for a better management of Sabah landscape, both agricultural and forest," added Goossens.

Dr. Peter Daszak, President of EcoHealth Alliance mentioned, "This laboratory represents a bold step forward in showing the linkage between conservation and health and demonstrating how collaborative partnerships can work so effectively for conservation, and for health. It is a success story for Sabah Wildlife Department, for the State and for the country of Malaysia, and will show the world how the new field of "EcoHealth" can benefit wildlife, ecosystems and public health."
