African Elephant EEHV Workshop
February 24-26, 2020 – Indianapolis Zoo
The threat of EEHV in African elephants became widely known in 2019. Despite major strides in research and treatment in Asian elephants, much information is needed regarding the impact, treatment and monitoring of EEHV in African elephants. Join the African Elephant EEHV Workshop hosted by the Indianapolis Zoo for the newest information on EEHV research, clinical management, and monitoring. The workshop will include several sessions for institutions with African elephants to collaborate on research, treatment and monitoring protocols. Curators, managers, keepers, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, scientists, researchers and conservationists of both Asian and African elephants are welcome.
We encourage registration by December 31, 2019 to receive the promotional room rate and discount on registration. These dates correspond to a major sporting event held in Indianapolis, so rooms may be limited after December 31.
