Summary

WHISPers stands for Wildlife Health Information Sharing Partnership - event reporting system. It is a web-based repository for sharing basic information about historic and ongoing wildlife mortality (death) and morbidity (illness) events. The system possesses a searchable archive of wildlife mortality and morbidity event data that is available to the public. The information is opportunistically collected and does not reflect all the mortality events that occur in North America. WHISPers is driven by a subset of data housed in NWHC’s ‘Epizoo’ database (http://data.usgs.gov/datacatalog/#q=EPIZOO).
