Sarcocystis Survey Feedback Report

The UK Wildfowl Sarcocystis Survey was set up as a collaborative project in 2015 between WWT, BASC, and the University of Liverpool, with additional input from the Royal Veterinary College in 2017. The aim of the project was to study the emergence, distribution, and potential impacts of Sarcocystis infection in UK wildfowl.

The findings of this collaborative project are summarised in theĀ 2015-2018 Feedback Report. This report draws on the data provided through the Sarcocystis Survey website, as well as the analysis of tissue samples sent in from across the UK. The full feedback report can be viewed below or downloaded here.

We are very grateful to all those who submitted reports for taking part in this project, and we encourage you to continue to report any cases of rice breast in future via our Survey Form. Your contributions are key to furthering our understanding of the impacts of this disease on UK wildfowl.
