We are planning on recording the symposium and having it available for all registered participants afterwards, if you are not able to watch in real-time.

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 am – 8am PST (1 pm – 4pm 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.

A call for abstracts and sample abstract are included and registration information will be available soon.
