About This Project

Recently, tuberculosis was discovered in populations of African black and white rhinoceroses in Kruger National Park (KNP), South Africa. In order to prevent the spread of this deadly disease, movement restrictions have been imposed on rhinoceros in KNP. The aim of this project is to develop new diagnostic tests to determine infection and allow uninfected animals to be moved outside of this endemic area.
