Not every day as a wildlife vet is spent in the field! This was a busy day in the classroom teaching local Tanzanian Animal Science students about zoonotic diseases in their area. Zoonotic diseases are those that can be shared between animals and humans, and are especially important in these parts of the world where vaccinations are not readily available for people or animals. Rabies is one of the most prominent examples of a zoonotic disease, and students learning how to best protect themselves when working closely with animals is absolutely crucial. Luckily the next day we were able to undertake a large rabies vaccination program in the surrounding villages, reducing the risk of infection of the people and their animals. I absolutely loved my time in Tanzania and look forward to returning!
