    About This Project

    Fishing line entanglement injuries are a common problem affecting over 200 different wildlife species globally. Often, animals struggle to free themselves for extended periods of time before they are extracted or brought to a veterinary hospital. This study will analyze whether blood lactate levels can be used as a biomarker for severity of injury or as a prognostic indicator for successful rehabilitation and release of entangled birds back into the wild in Southwest Florida.
