From June 15th until 19th the renowned author Alexander McCall Smith (author of “The No.I Ladies Detective Agency” series) and his wife Elizabeth stayed at Seronera Serengeti accommodated by FZS. McCall Smith is the patron of the “Alliance for Rabies Control” (www.rabiescontrol.net) and this visit was used to raise awareness about rabies and the activities of the charity. Alexander McCall Smith visited two communities in the Serengeti ecosystem where he met with families of rabies victims and dog vaccination campaigns were performed. About 500 dogs with their owners waiting in line for their vaccinations showed the excellent success of the rabies campaign. FZS has provided logistics support for these campaigns. Dr. Karen Laurenson, who is Programme Manager of FZS Africa Regional Office, is also one of the Directors of the “Alliance for Rabies Control”.
