    About This Project

    RNA viruses cause several important diseases in humans and animals (e.g. West Nile, Ebola, rabies) and are associated with significant mortality in captive reptiles. However, these viruses are understudied in wild reptile populations and their effects on individual survival and population stability are unknown. We aim to test wild state-endangered Blanding's turtles for RNA viruses to determine their health effects and support effective conservation strategies.
