Never Forget

EEHV is a deadly virus that affects young elephants both in zoos and in the wild. 80% of elephants struck by EEHV will die. Your donations will help us fight the disease as we search for a cure.

Story

This year I have decided to go BIG! Mammoth in fact šŸ˜œ.Ā 

During 2019 I will be completing a challenge a month in order to supportĀ Chester Zoo's Never Forget campaign. Challenges are varied and range from crochet to a half Ironman. Follow my adventures on Instagram @mymammothyear, like my page on FB, My Mammoth Year and my blog pageĀ https://mymammothyear.home.blogĀ 

The Never ForgetĀ campaign aims to raise funding to support research into the elephant endotheliotropic herpes virus (EEHV). EEHVĀ typicallyĀ strikes young Asian elephants during the weaning phase andĀ can beĀ fatal. It affects both wild and zoo elephant populations. Tragically, ChesterĀ zoo has lost elephant calves to this deadly virus. Lots isĀ still unknown about EEHV and how to treatĀ it,Ā soĀ more research is vitally important. For more information visit: www.chesterzoo.org/support-us/eehv

As an elephant keeper atĀ Chester zoo EEHVĀ is never far from my thoughts. Please help me to make a difference and secure a future for these truly awesome creatures. Every penny counts!
