    About This Project

    The Chernobyl disaster site has hundreds of feral dogs that are in need of care. A team of students from the University of South Carolina will work with an international team of veterinarians and animal welfare groups (CFF+) to gather scientific information concerning the health of these dogs in relation to radiation exposure. The team will spend three weeks in June, 2018, at the Chernobyl animal clinic in Ukraine gathering DNA and other measures of animal health.
