Advisory Bodies

The SeaDoc Society’s success depends on the dedicated involvement of our stakeholder Board of Directors and our scientific advisors.

The SeaDoc Society is a non-profit program of the Wildlife Health Center, a center of excellence at the world-renowned UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. The Wildlife Health Center develops and administers innovative programs that create solutions for threatened wildlife and their ailing ecosystems around the world. SeaDoc Society was founded in 1999 with a private gift to the Wildlife Health Center from concerned citizens who recognized the Inland Waters of the Pacific Northwest are experiencing an unprecedented health crisis. This unique marine ecosystem is surrounded by nearly 6 million people. Consequently, marshes and mudflats have been paved, rocky shorelines replaced by bulkheads, flowing rivers interrupted by dams, and native fish harvested to the brink of extinction. We are funded through a unique public/private partnership. As part of UC Davis, we’re able to leverage the intellectual and organizational capital of a leading research university. And as a non-profit organization that gets much of its funding from individuals, foundations, and research contracts, we’re intimately tied to the people and regions we serve.
