number of confidentiality principles apply to information provided through the WIRES
These principles are intended to apply to information (other than that
already clearly in the public domain) provided at WIRES meetings, in correspondence,
or circulated to WIRES members by email or mail. They are that:
Information made available to WIRES members is provided on the
basis that it may directly or indirectly assist in the care of native animals, and
is intended only for that purpose.
- This information should not be given to the media or used in
academic or other publications without the specific and written approval of the
original source (owner) of this information.
- WIRES members reporting information
to the Intranet should exercise care in reporting information that may identify
individuals or small communities when there may be some stigma or other adverse
consequences associated with such reports.
