Ellen Wiedner, VMD, Dipl. ACVIM, Dipl. ACZM, Dipl. ECZM
Despite their long history with humans as religious icons, in popular culture and children's literature, and even as work and war animals, elephants remain an enigma. From their massive size to their unique physiology to their intelligence, elephants remain a challenge for those who seek to study or work with them. As poaching, human-elephant conflict and habitat loss take their toll on wild populations, while struggles with reproduction, disease, and divisive politics affect those in human care, elephants more than ever need to be appreciated and understood as the remarkable creatures they are. Dr Ellen Wiedner has been a veterinarian for 20 years and has worked with elephants worldwide for the past 15 years. In this talk, she discusses how to provide routine and emergency care to 20,000-pound animals, as well as how we can improve the future outlook for these extraordinary creatures.
