Laikipia Rabies Vaccination Campaign

Rabies is still prevalent in Kenya, estimated to kill up to 2,000 people a year. Mpala Research Centre started this project in collaboration with a number of other conservancies, ranches and the Laikipia County Government, with efforts led and documented by a committed team of local and international scientists. They have already vaccinated tens of thousands of animals, saving the lives of many thousands more, both domestic and wild. The campaign efforts have also led to an increase in population numbers of endangered species such as the African Wild Dog. Follow to read more.
