African Elephant EEHV Workshop
Calling all of you who work with African Elephants, and/or EEHV Subject Matter Experts/EEHV Groupies:
There will be an African Elephant EEHV Workshop February 24-26, 2020, at the Indianapolis Zoo.
There have been seven cases of EEHV Hemorrhagic disease documented in African elephants in the US in 2019, three of them fatal. We have learned a tremendous amount about EEHV and Asian elephants through a lot of amazing collaboration and hard work over the last decade. The Indianapolis Zoo, the EEHV Advisory Group, and San Diego Zoo Global are ready to get all the African elephant holding institutions up to speed on EEHV research, clinical management of an EEHV hemorrhagic disease case, monitoring recommendations and more. We'll also put our heads together on future research priorities and population needs.
This workshop is intended for elephant veterinarians as well as zoo professionals who care for elephants. Please pass this on to your elephant keepers, managers, curators, and directors. If you have not been paying attention to EEHV, this is your institution's one-stop shopping opportunity to get caught up. Don't miss out.
