Elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV) continues to impact Asian elephants and now, increasingly, African elephants, in human care. The extent of its impact on the wild populations is just starting to be elucidated.
The North American EEHV Advisory Group is planning a three-day virtual EEHV Symposium January 25-27, 2022, from 5:00am to 8:00am PST (1:00pm to 4:00pm GMT). Although we are disappointed that we cannot meet with all our colleagues in person, we are happy to facilitate this meeting to gather everyone together and exchange ideas on how to improve outcomes for elephant populations impacted by EEHV.
We look forward to including researchers, veterinarians, and elephant husbandry colleagues from across the world to participate in what we hope will be a global symposium to present case reports, research findings, vaccine research, treatments, and advisory/working group updates. We will also be organizing regional breakout sessions as well as panel discussions on treatment and husbandry/training.
Abstracts submissions are welcome on any topic pertaining to EEHV and you are especially encouraged to share your new information on EEHV research, clinical management, training, institutional support, and conservation connections. Abstracts are due by December 27, 2021, to Meredith Wagoner (email@example.com). Please follow the example abstract format.
Workshop registration will be open soon and further information will follow. For more information, visit www.eehvinfo.org.
