Species-specific Recommendations

The species-specific recommendations are intended to complement the CCAC guidelines on: the care and use of wildlife by providing information on 'best practices' for various species groups. These recommendations are to be viewed alongside the more general guidelines on wildlife. Additionally, investigators should consult species-appropriate literature and seek the advice of persons experienced with the particular species of interest. We expect the recommendations listed here to evolve as new information becomes available and encourage those working with wildlife to submit any relevant information they encounter to the CCAC. All information received will undergo peer review before being added to the species-specific recommendations.
