Memory, Mapping, and Mapogoro…

The HALI team is live trapping wild and commensal rodents in the Idodi Division, Iringa District Tanzania this month as part of PREDICT’s wildlife surveillance activities. This week, HALI is working in Mapogoro and Mahuninga, at a few select interfaces characterized as “high-risk” for rodent-transmitted diseases, like around the homes of villagers and pastoralists, and in the shambas (fields) where rodents frequently feed on maize and other crops.  We thought it would be fun to highlight where Mapogoro actually is, so we made a quick Google map of the area.  When some pictures of wild rodents start trickling in from the field, we’ll post those too, most likely as part of an interactive card game like Memory to identify and learn about wildlife in Tanzania.  Enjoy!
