    1. Pacific Islands H5N1 Wildlife Surveillance Plan General Overview

    2. Why Sample Wild Birds? • They are the known reservoirs of AI • They are suspected to move HPAI H5N1 in Europe, Asia and Africa • In the U.S., domestic poultry is monitored carefully and importation of products from HPAI areas is controlled. • Wild birds are not regularly monitored

    3. Why Sample the Pacific Islands? • Flyways include known HPAI areas in China, NE Asia • Species (esp. shorebirds) in the Pacific are not well sampled in N. America. • U.S.-Affiliated Pacific covers an area larger than N. America, and reaches within 700 miles of Indonesia

    4. Pacific Ocean Flyways

    5. Sampling Methods • Investigation of Morbidity/Mortality Events (most likely detection) • Surveillance in Live Wild Birds • Sentinel species (ducks) • Environmental (Fecal) Sampling Collaboration between USDA-WS, FWS, USGS, and local wildlife agencies

    6. Northern Pintail Northern Shoveler Other Asian species Pacific Golden-Plover Ruddy Turnstone Bristle-thighed Curlew Other Asian species Priority SpeciesDucks Shorebirds Based on numbers on Pacific Islands, Asian component in breeding range, and mixing with Asian birds during migration

    7. Surveillance: Live Ducks • Ducks preferable to shorebirds due to higher AI prevalence • No hunting or banding currently • Capture ducks with baited traps • Sample size desired ~200 for each species • Focus on Hawai’i and Marianas • Requires dedicated crew plus volunteers

    8. Surveillance: Live Shorebirds • Shorebirds more abundant but dispersed • Fecal sampling more efficient than capture? • Capture with • Mist nets • Walk-in traps • “Whoosh” nets • Focus on Hawai’i, Marianas, island Refuges • Requires dedicated crew plus volunteers

    9. Dead Bird Sampling Plan • Use live bird crews plus existing networks in Hawai’i, Marianas • Add 1 dedicated tech each to Palau, American Samoa • All migratory mortalities will be investigated • Coordinate with existing agriculture, wildlife agencies and networks
