What vaccinating vampire bats can teach us about pandemics | Daniel Streicker

In this talk about frontline scientific research, ecologist Daniel Streicker takes us to the Amazon rainforest in Peru where he tracks the movement of vampire bats in order to forecast and prevent rabies outbreaks.

By studying these disease patterns, Streicker shows how we could learn to cut off the next pandemic at its source.
