This summer, HALI was proud to host the third Envirovet Summer Institute Developing Country Session in Tanzania.  Led by HALI Project team leaders Drs. Deana Clifford, Harrison Sadiki, and Rudovick Kazwala, the Developing Country Session took place July 20-August 10.

This year, 27 participants hailing from 10 countries, tested cattle for bovine tuberculosis in HALI Project villages, helped veterinarians immobilize giraffe for ongoing research in Ruaha National park, visited research projects focused on human and animal health in Ifakara and Morogoro, and concluded with an ocean health program on the island of Zanzibar.  Over 30 Tanzanian instructors contributed their time expertise for this three-week intensive field course. Many thanks to all who helped make this another outstanding training opportunity for future wildlife health professionals!
