Wildlife veterinarians and rehabilitators have a unique “window” on the health of native wildlife—and that perspective can provide valuable insight into the health of the environment as a whole. Those ideas provide the rationale behind the Wildlife Center of Virginia’s development of WILD-ONe.

WILD-ONe is a free, online data system for patient management, tracking, report generation, and research which has been used by over 150 wildlife facilities around the globe since 2011.

The purposes of WILD-ONe are twofold:

  • to assist wildlife caregivers in managing and making best use of the massive amount of patient information they collect, and
  • to provide conservation researchers with valuable, standardized incident and outcome data on sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife for use in scientific studies and conservation policymaking.

WILD-ONe is a user-friendly system that reduces time spent on paperwork and allows for accurate record keeping and report generation. The platform enables wildlife rehabilitators and veterinary clinics to contribute to a comprehensive global rehabilitation dataset created to assess trends in wildlife health.
