Population & Climate Change Course – “Zoonosis: How Does Population Influence Animal-to-Human Pathogen Spillover?”

August 20, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Join Communications Manager, Hannah Evans for the third session of her month-long course at 2 pm ET/11 am PT!

Using the Covid-19 pandemic as an example, Zoonosis: How Does Population Influence Animal-to-Human Pathogen Spillover?” will discuss the links between human activity and zoonotic diseases. It will explore how deforestation, habitat destruction, species extinction, wildlife trade, and industrialized agriculture have contributed to zoonotic disease outbreaks by creating ideal environments for animal-to-human pathogen spillovers. The class will end by introducing the “OneHealth” approach to conservation as a potential way to stop future outbreaks.
