EcoHealth Alliance works across the United States and in 20 other countries in Central and South America. In America, EcoHealth Alliance works with the federal government to promote science in the classrooms and science-guided legislature proposals. EcoHealth Alliance has a multitude of projects focused on promoting greater ecological health and biodiversity. Bat Conservation and Health focuses on communicable diseases in bat communities, and how to prevent them. The Sicki Project supports peer review efforts and facilitates scientific collaboration in an attempt to discover the origins of emerging infectious diseases, while other projects focus on ending the illegal wildlife trade. EcoHealth Alliance supports conservationists in order to save endangered species and their habitats, and strives to protect delicate ecosystems for the benefit of both wildlife and humans.
