Northern Australia faces an increasing risk of a canine rabies incursion due to the eastwards spread of rabies across the Indonesian archipelago. Remote Indigenous communities in northern Australia are situated within complex ecosystems containing large populations of free-roaming domestic dogs,surrounded by widely dispersed wild dog populations. Managing the response to a rabies incursion within this ecosystem presents enormous challenges.
