The Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA), formerly Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA), Diseases of Wildlife Scheme conducts wildlife disease surveillance (including wildlife related emerging diseases and zoonoses, diseases of conservation importance and diseases that may reflect pollution) for all vertebrate wildlife species.

The Diseases of Wildlife Scheme is run by the APHA and funded by Defra. The APHA heads the GB Wildlife Disease Surveillance Partnership (GBWDSP) which brings together other organisations that are also involved in wildlife disease surveillance.
