It is a European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) project whose main objective is to collect information on the geographical distribution, abundance and structure of selected wildlife species populations relevant for livestock and human health.

The specific objectives of ENETWILD are:

 To collect existing published or unpublished data on the geographical distribution and abundance of selected wildlife hosts, to validate and to aggregate them in a harmonized way in a common database.

    To promote and coordinate the generation of new data on distribution and abundance of selected wildlife species, and modelling them, to fill the gaps identified in objective-1.

    To further enhance the network of wildlife professionals to support data collection activities required in objectives 1 and 2:

– To link the existing network to other European or international groups/networks active in the area of wildlife population surveillance.

– To promote the development and adoption of harmonized protocols for presence assessments and population counts, standardization of data format validation and quality assessment of data submissions.

– To strengthen collaboration on integral wildlife surveillance activities in Europe enhancing the European network between population and health specialists.

The objectives that ENETWILD will develop during next years are specifically focused on wild boar.
