Asian Elephant Health, Reproduction and Breeding Management
The Royal Veterinary College, UK in collaboration with the Chiang Mai University, Thailand, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, Sri Lanka and the National Elephant Institute in Thailand
This international annual training course is developed on a novel pedagogical model of combining a stand-alonedistance (online-based) course together with a practical training course conducted either in Sri Lanka or Thailand. The course in 2013 will offer the one-week practical training course in Kandy, Pinnawela (elephant orphanage) and Uda Walave (elephant transit-home) in Sri Lanka.
The online course is designed to provide the background knowledge in elephant reproduction and health so that participants can be fully engaged with the one-week practical training course.
