In 2002 IWWA provided $3100 to Dr. Gary Riggs for the development of a test for avian tuberculosis in this species with the hope that it will have further application. This money was used to support the work on site and lab work done at Texas A&M. They are attempting to develop an ante mortem test to predict mycobacterial infections in waterfowl in the early stages. Dr. Riggs, who is now IWWA's consulting veterinarian, continues to work with the staff at Sylvan Heights Waterfowl on monitoring their population of white-winged wood ducks.
