Recent APHIS Tribal Relations Training and Workshop Highlights

APHIS hosted a Tribal Biologist Workshop for Disease Detection and Surveillance at the Great Lakes Native American Fish and Wildlife Society Regional Conference held at the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, in Hayward, Wisconsin in September 2022. Participants learned how to properly utilize personal protective equipment (PPE) for wildlife disease sampling, how to sample deer for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) and SARS-CoV-2, and how to sample waterfowl for avian influenza.
