Contribute to save the Asian Elephant

Aziatische olifanten, moeder en kind

The Asian elephant is threatened with extinction. The number one cause of death of young elephants is the Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpes Virus (EEHV). This viral disease is particularly complex and there is no vaccine or effective treatment. Researchers from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine want to do something about this. With your donation you help make a rapid diagnosis possible and enable research for a vaccine and treatment.

You can also transfer your donation to the Utrecht University Fund, bank account number NL43INGB0000014475, with payment reference 'Contribute to saving the Asian Elephant’.
