Beyond illnesses like Lyme’s or rabies, most people rarely think about wildlife diseases. Ian Gereg will provide an overview of some of the wildlife diseases of concern in Pennsylvania and how the public can help protect wildlife, pets and themselves. In addition, he will cover some of the current wildlife disease research being conducted in the state.

Ian Gereg is one of seven wildlife health technicians in Pennsylvania. He works for the Wildlife Futures Program at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Wildlife Futures’ main office is located on the campus of New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Chester County. Currently, he divides his time between responding to wildlife disease concerns and wildlife disease research sampling. Before working for Wildlife Futures, he was in the zoological field. Gereg holds an undergraduate degree in environmental science from Unity College in Unity, ME and a graduate degree in wildlife management from the State University of New York’s School of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY.
