Results of a second survey to assess the reproductive status of female Asian and African elephants in North America



Results of a second survey to assess the reproductive status of female Asian and African elephants in North America



Zoo Biology 29(2): 127-139



Surveys are being conducted to monitor the reproductive health of elephants managed by the TAG/SSP. This study summarizes results of a 2005 survey and compares data to one conducted in 2002. Surveys were returned for 100% and 79.0% of Asian and African elephants, respectively. Of those, 79.3% of Asian and 92.1% of African elephants had weekly progestagen data to assess ovarian cyclicity.
