Las Huellas partnership with anti-tick method on Nilgai

Free ranging nilgai are loved by many in South Texas for hunting and commercial harvest opportunities, but they do negatively contribute to the spread of cattle fever ticks and can threaten the productivity of native rangelands. We are supporting the continued research of this wildlife species and solving the mystery of how to treat Nilgai for cattle fever ticks.
