This two day workshop, known as the Journées réseau faune-zoo, is organised by the provincial Health, Agriculture and Wildlife departments and the Québec regional CCWHC office.  This year, over 50 veterinarians, biologists and technicians with an interest in wildlife health participated in the event.  Several presentations about issues currently affecting wildlife health in the Province of Quebec were given.
