Primum non nocere - first do no harm - is a familiar idiom in medicine and valuable advice for those involved in planning and undertaking intensive conservation interventions in conservation emergencies such as Australia's bushfires. The risk of introducing or amplifying infectious disease to a threatened species in such interventions is real, and effective mitigation of this risk demands its prioritization in emergency conservation responses.
