About This Project

Caused by protozoa and transmitted by tsetse flies, African trypanosomiasis ranges from subclinical to fatal in many hosts, human, domestic, and wild. Stressed wildlife, such as animals undergoing translocation, can die from the infection. We will test wildlife immobilized for translocations, support park rangers to sample deceased wildlife, and generate maps of heterogeneous tsetse densities to guide wildlife translocation releases.

Blast off!
