Nasal Colonization of Staphylococcus Spp among Captive and Free-Ranging Wallabies in South Australia

Nasal Colonization of Staphylococcus Spp among Captive and Free-Ranging Wallabies in South Australia

Staphylococcal species diversity has been well studied with regard to antibiotic resistance in humans and animals of commercial or social value. However, studies of free-ranging wildlife and animals of conservation value are limited. In this study, multidrug resistant staphylococci were found exclusively in free-ranging wallabies indicating human activity and prior antibiotic exposure may not be significant contributing factors to the development of antibiotic resistance in staphylococci in animal reservoirs.
