Kevin Hynes has been with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Wildlife Health Unit for 25 years. He was involved in documenting early rabies expansion in NY wildlife, West Nile Virus identification and surveillance, and Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) response and surveillance. Kevin’s lecture this evening will provide an overview of the Wildlife Health Program structure and case flow in NY and discuss CWD, the disease that is demanding much of the unit’s attention and resources.
