2%), even with constant arrival of new infested birds to CIVS.
The monitoring of ectoparasitism should be a routine part of the health care of incoming and long-term captive raptors of conservation centers like the CIVS, since parasite prevention and monitoring programs require minimal time and cost (Morishita 1997).
The CIVS has a release program of some rehabilited raptors, which may occur in protected areas of Mexico.
For all these reasons, in conservation centers such as the CIVS, a health assessment that includes physical examination, fecal and blood parasite evaluation, hematology and plasma biochemical analysis should be performed routinely (trimestrial or half-yearly) in incoming and long-term captive raptors.
Furthermore, due to the fact that the CIVS is also a rehabilitation center of wild birds of prey, the knowledge of the causes of morbidity and mortality of incoming and long-term captive raptors, may provide insight into the health status and conservation of wild populations which should be studied in the future.
