About This Project

Elephant endotheliotropic herpes virus hemorrhagic disease (EEHV-HD) is the leading cause of death of young Asian elephants in North America and Europe, and suspected to occur in Myanmar. We will validate EEHV testing methods for feces and chewed plants, samples that can be easily collected, to enable a longitudinal study of EEHV epidemiology in captive and wild elephant herds in Myanmar. The ultimate goal is to identify management-related mitigation strategies for this devastating disease.
