This week Berdiri and the Breeding Program received a big boost from The LMI Group. In support of the breeding program The LMI Group has kindly donated a portable digital diagnostic ultrasound system (Landwind CU30). The perfect tool to help examine the PLG camp elephants to check for pregnancies and general health checks for any abnormalities. The portability of such a machine will be perfect for our work in the field in the remote PLG Seblat elephant conservation center. On top of that Biovet Australia have also included a handheld CO2 monitor to help measure and check vital signs.

From all of us here at Berdiri we would like to give a heart felt thank you to The LMI Group especially Professor Allan Manning for being such a champion for the cause. It is with the amazing support from such individuals and The LMI Group family that we are able too continue the important work with the critically endangered elephants of Sumatra.

With the newly donated ultrasound equipment it is a perfect time for vets from around the world to jump on board with our volunteer Vet Support 2019 program. We are looking for vets who want to volunteer their time to help provide health checks, pregnancy checks and the provision of medication to keep the elephants in perfect health.

Here is to a successful 2019.
