Abstract

This manuscript summarizes the break-out session held on population management strategies for reducing koala retrovirus (KoRV) impacts on captive populations at the Koala Conservation Workshop: The koala and its retroviruses: implications for sustainability and survival held at San Diego Zoo, April 17–18, 2013. The goals of this break-out session were to identify research and population management activities that could facilitate reducing KoRV impacts on captive koala populations. Although both goals were met and suggested activities identified, no long term modifications to current breeding strategies were agreed upon due to current gaps in knowledge about KoRV. Herein, proposed research and population management activities developed at the workshop are described.
