After the mass die-off of frogs and salamanders in the Dutch province of Drenthe caused by ranavirus, the Dutch organisation for Reptile, Amphibian & Fish Conservation (RAVON) and the Dutch Wildlife Health Centre (DWHC), with funding from the local council, carried out an information campaign in the province. The campaign included the creation and distribution of an informative flyer, presentations about the virus given by various organisations and television coverage of the story.
The flyer contains information about the effect of ranavirus, how it can be recognised and the role people play in its transmission and the prevention of virus spread. It is available (in Dutch) here.
Annemarieke Spitzen (RAVON) and Jolianne Rijks (DWHC) gave three presentations in various locations throught the province (Informatiecentrum van Natuurmonumenten in Fochteloërveen op 12 March; ICO Centrum voor Kunst en Kultuur op 23 April; Landschapsbeheer Drenthe op 24 March).
On the 30th of April 2014 Jolianne Rijks (DWHC) gave an interview on the local television about ranavirus. It is available (in Dutch) via this link RTV-Drenthe 2014, (starting at minute 3.1).
