Toxoplasmosis is a parasite-borne infection that can wreak havoc on wildlife and humans with compromised immune systems. The parasite that causes toxoplasmosis comes from cats, specifically their feces. It has been blamed for the death of at least eight Hawaiian monk seals, the endemic Hawaiian crow, and several other vulnerable bird species. It was the subject of a forum this past weekend sponsored by the University of Hawaii Law School. We wanted to continue the conversation about how to manage the situation.
