Canary Database Mission

The Canary Database aims to overcome scientific barriers which limit the use of animal sentinel data for early recognition of human environmental health hazards. These barriers include difficulty in locating animal sentinel studies in current biomedical databases and a lack of communication between human health and animal health professionals.

The Canary Database will overcome such barriers by making the scientific literature on animals as sentinels of human environmental hazards more accessible in a single location.
