About This Project

Rabies is one of the greatest threats to the continued survival of the African wild dog (Lycaon pictus). Vaccination has the potential to prevent mass mortalities associated with the virus, but single-dose strategies may not result in sufficient immunity. This study therefore focuses on the effects of a rabies booster vaccination on serum antibody levels in African wild dogs. Results may serve to inform future vaccination programmes and help secure the future of this endangered species.
