ISWE Mission & Vision

Our Mission is to advance the field of wildlife endocrinology by promoting stronger inter-disciplinary collaboration among wildlife and conservation biologists to optimize animal health, reproduction, and welfare in support of global conservation efforts.

Our Vision is to provide an international forum that facilitates the exchange of information and development of collaborative wildlife endocrine studies. To help advance the use of non-invasive and minimally invasive sampling technologies and assist in the standardization of methods and analyses for the scientific study of wildlife physiology both in situ and ex situ.

Wildlife Endocrinology Information Network (WEIN)

ISWE Members have access to WEIN, a web based, searchable data network containing information on endocrine methods and analyses including sample type, sample processing, hormone assays (EIA and RIA) and endocrine results on various domestic and wildlife species both in situ and ex situ. The database allows the sharing of information regarding endocrine monitoring in a given species. The database is a reference place for endocrinological techniques and species based information. The goal of WEIN is to become the primary resource for researchers worldwide to learn, analyze, and share information about the growing field of wildlife endocrinology. WEIN provides a venue for techniques and relevant data creating a critical resource for people interested in zoo and wildlife health and conservation. read more >
