Scientific Task Force on Wildlife and Ecosystem Health

The Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, a primary Movebank sponsor, is a core affiliate of the Scientific Task Force on Wildlife and Ecosystem Health. The task force was created by the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS) Conference of the Parties to identify wildlife diseases that have the greatest potential to impact human, environmental, livestock, and wildlife health. The CMS is an intergovernmental treaty created under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme.
