Asian elephants worldwide suffer from a deadly disease called EEHV. Currently, there is no cure and many young elephants sadly die of the disease.
But there is hope. Chester Zoo and their partners are leading the way in developing a vaccine, which could help save the species. Last year, Chester Zoo was the first to begin a pilot study for the vaccine, with promising results.
