Benoît Goossens travelled to Chiang Mai, in Thailand, from 31 May to 2 June 2010 to attend the International Symposium on Health and Reproduction of Asian Elephants organised by the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Chiang Mai with support from the EU-Asia Link Elephant Project. The symposium was composed of seven main sessions, namely management of captive and wild elephants, elephant health care, reproduction, endocrinology, behaviour, genetics and conservation. Benoît was one of the invited speakers and gave a presentation on the conservation genetics of the Bornean elephant and an update on the recent research that DGFC and partners have been carrying out on the species in Sabah.
