Banded mongoose offer a unique model to evaluate the impact of human activity on the environment. In our study site, mongoose live closely with humans and are also impacted by their activities both in the form of behavioral change but also disease. Understanding the nature and consequences of these impacts will allow us to better understand how humans are linked to the environment and the feedback that occurs to both humans and animals.
